Your best bet or options, because I highly doubt there's a manual or diagram (maybe through a restoration company online)
#1) find someone with model such as yours and sketch how his/hers is routed or #2) As a majority of rod friends of mine do, they buy straight lengths of brake line from parts stores and route what's convenient or "logical". Some of the older cars were pretty primitive and didn't always do things to accommodate options/logistics. (Some new cars are worse!)
Personally unless you're building a show stopping original, I'd route them "what makes sense to you"
I envy you, I've built a couple and situations change, I sold them after all work invested, now am kicking myself.. Good luck

1999 silveado chey 1500 break line


If you are looking for pre-made lines, especially for the front, as of last year, there were none (that neither I, nor a friend that works for GM dealer, could find). My front line burst and almost smashed into a cop at a stoplight. We had to take out the bad line, then "match it up" with new line and make 90% of bends, then install it and make the last little bit of adjustments. No, we did not need to use sand or anything to keep it from crimping as none of the bends were sharp enough to be in the danger zone.
I highly recommend having a friend with you when you replace it if it is a front one (jammed between frame and body), even if they know nothing of automotive work, because you will most likely need to be in two areas at once while bending it "correctly".
Good luck. (photo is right where mine burst)

Brakes go to floor


If the brake master cylinder is full with approved DOT 3 brake fluid and the vacuum line that attaches to the brake booster is in place and not leaking or disconnected at either end, check for leaking fluid on all 4 tires, if you find no fluid at the tires indicating a caliper is leaking then the problem is the master cylinder being bad.

You might have a collapsed brake hose going to that side. It will be the rubber line from the caliper to the frame. You cant tell by looking at it but the inside of it might have collapsed not allowing the fluid to flow back, and only allowing it in. Ive seen this happen before.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

Ground goes through the master switch on the drivers side. Bad master switch can cause the other windows not to work. Don't forget to check the "window lock" switch in the master switch, which shuts off the other 3 windows.

Replacing front driver side (F150) brake line (rubber hose)


Brake fluid is highly corrosive. If you can't get the line loose on the frame side then I would suggest replacing the hard line as well coming from the master cylinder. Or if you have a flaring tool you could cut the hard line just behind the rubber and put a new fitting on it. Pretty easy if you have the tool. Essentially you will wind up kinking or breaking the hard line anyway if the fitting won't come loose easy.

F 250 brakes


Does the red break light come on the dash like when the park break is applied?
If so the check your proportioning valve if the truck has an abs system then the valve will be called a rabs valve.( located on the frame rail under the driver side seat) Check the break lines on the front calipers to see if they are damaged they may have been pinched so bad that they will not release. Also check to see If the master cylinder was changed , if the break lines were connected to the master cylinder incorrectly or the wrong master cylinder was installed the breaks will apply themselves…please rate this if it helped thx…
