Getting ready to do this conversion. I have a question before ordering from Clarks.
I plan on ordering the dual conversion kit, and a hard line kit. The question is, should I order the '67 hard line kit (without M/C lines) or my stock '65 lines ?

Thank You,

Bill

Lon,
I was the one you talked to one the phone. I emailed you the photos you asked for, called three times and left messages and still haven't heard back from you.

On my 66 coupe I replaced the main steel line with the 67 pre-bent from Clarks. I also bought the 67 bulkhead fitting instead if doing the grommet thing. Used the master brake cylinder lines that came with the Clark's master and CAREFULLY re-bent the rear line to fit. See photos. If you go this route, make sure you put the bulkhead fitting closer to the existing front line bulkhead fitting. Had to bend the main line because where I put the fitting the main line would interferes with the heater duct.

I have been trying to resolve a dual master cylinder issue with Corvair Underground for months now. The lines did not match the instructions. Lon thought he had sent me a LM kit instead of a EM kit. New lines came, but they did not look right either. I mailed all the lines back, but kept the master cylinder and adaptors. That was a couple of months ago. Lon has responded that he would get me the correct lines but I haven't seen them yet.

I don't believe that anyone is trying to cheat me, but the service or lack of it is a real problem. I have hesitated to say this but it's true. Maybe I will have to give up and fabricate the lines I need. Too bad.

Well, Matt, it must be nice to own a double flare tool. I hate to get one just to finish a job that should not have needed it. I was hoping that by posting my problem, Lon would get this out of the way.
Like I say, I have been extra patient (You should see the list of emails, and telephone calls). The beat goes on.

You can buy different lengths of tubing with the flares and nuts already on them. Just bend to shape and go. I ran into the same problem as you when I bought the same kit about 10 years ago. It had a weird mix of parts. Some of which I used, extra fittings that didn't appear to go anywhere, one line that fit and another that I couldn't figure out where it could have gone given the short length and the bends it had. I ended up making a line.
