Brief Description: Brake resevoir lines to brake cylinders-2
Finished running the plastic line on the right side. In order to not get tangled up in the parking brake valve arm and lock, I came up and then made a turn to the left. Used a couple of Adel clamps to secure the line to the right brake line. Temporarily secured plastic lines to the left brake line with twisty ties. Could have left the right plastic line a few inches longer, but no—had to cut it. It should be ok, but another inch or two would have been better. Many builders are using the master cylinders that attach to the back of the brake cylinders—sure makes a neat looking install. This would eliminate all this plastic line stuff, but I have also read that the master cylinders on the brake cylinders may limit rudder/brake travel if using the forward most position on the rudder pedal assembly. I have fairly long legs, so I wanted all the clearance I could get between firewall and rudder pedals. After the seats are installed and rudder attached, I may possibly re-think this setup if I can be comfortable with the rudder pedal assembly adjusted back from the firewall to the next notch on the slide bar. At that point, I can always change them out if I want to.
