Help... I'm rebuilding a '79 FJ-40 that I didn't take apart. Therefore, I'm looking for a schematic, or detailed pictures of the routing of the brake lines. I've purchased a new set of braided lines as well as the complete hard line set from Cruiser Solutions. I requested pictures from Cruiser Solutions, but they have none. They say they've never heard of someone starting from scratch to install lines, rather than just replacing. I think I have "most" of the front done correctly, but I'm not sure about the routing and mounting of the rear lines, how to mount the rear flex line from the frame down to the rear axle, and the brackets and lines on each rear hub. In fact, it appears I may be missing the 2 rear hard lines that look like semicircles from cylinder to cylinder on each hub, but a picture may answer it for me. Any thoughts? Thanks, Erik.

Try Spector Off Road's on-line catalog sor.com Their diagrams are from factory manuals and are good references.

SOR is a good choice for reference but in the end it really doesn't matter what it looks like as long as it works and you're happy with it.

Just search the forum for pictures of axles and things like that and you'll get a good idea of what's been done.

Well here's a few pics of a 79 BJ40 from the other side of the world (which I would expect to have been routed the same) Erik:

Here's a photo of the rear of the LH wheel:

And here's a picture of the front of it:

And here's a picture of where the flexible line meets the chassis rail:
