Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
To convert an old abs system to a "normal" braking system, Find a similar vehicle in a scrapyard, map out the lines so you know where they go, and then remove the parts. You will need the master cylinder and the proportioning valve (small junction block that the lines from the master go to first) from the donor vehicle.
It's best to use new lines...old rusted ones will often break and are difficult to work with. You should follow factory routing where possible but it doesn't need to be perfect, just stay clear of moving parts, hot maniflold or pipes, and make sure the lines are secure so they don't vibrate or rub against anything (where difficult, I split a rubber hose and secure it to the line to protect it). Use pressure unions not ferrule type splice junctions, and you can carefully coil any line that is a bit too long as long as it does not kink or hang down where it will get caught on anything.
After assembly, bleed the system.
One tip on removing old rusted lines... cut the line with a pair of wire cutters and use a six point socket to remove the fitting. You aren't saving the line so what you do to it does not matter and the six point socket will remove the fitting without rounding it off. Always use flair nut wrenches when installing.
