Exactly.

In my photo, the one on the left (closer to the handle) is "in" (fluid from the master), the one on the right is "out" (fluid to the rear brakes).

If I recall correctly, the instructions said the opposite. They were wrong. ^_^

And if you use stainless lines and banjo bolts like I did, you can always swap them if you get it wrong. :P


I’m thinking to use the copper hardline because it’s so maluable and cheap! Plus I work at Oreileys so it's even cheaper.

Thank you so much man! I’m stoked ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
All I’ve got to do now is get that carb leak fixed, install this ebrake and it’ll be good. I’m gonna need to burp my car. Think my thermostat COULD be stuck but also my sensor isn’t working at times lmao

No, that would not work. That would push fluid both directions. The rear line needs to be bypassed through the e-brake. 

 

Line to rear of car goes to e-brake instead, then line out of e-brake to rear brakes. 

 

Is yours the 2-line version like this?

Yes, the one I ordered looks identical to that. I understand a bit more now. 

 

So im sorry to rephrase but I just don't want to fuck this up. So since there's two ports on the master cylinder for the e-brake, it acts as a midpoint for the break lines.

 

So the brake lines for the rear coming from the engine bay enter into the cylinder. then the other port on the cylinder connect where I cut off initially. Which port on the cylinder is for which? or it doesnt matter? 

 

master cylinder ---> rear brake lines --> one of the ebrake ports ----> THE OTHER ebrake port ----> to the rear brakes themselves.

FWIW, that's what I did. Took a stainless line from the end of the rear brake line to the e-brake, then another line from that back to where the rear line plugged into the T. Then bled as normal. 

 

Did use a power bleeder initially, though. That helps get all the air out. 

 

I'm a little confused. when you said you took the line from the rear brake. 

 

I was thinking all i had to do was literally put a t into the brake line right before it splits, then bleed my brakes?
