From the caliper, do the brake hoses go up or down?? I'm not sure which side is which anymore.

Also does the disk brake 3/8" hard line coupling nut to the flex line face forward or aft?

I'm in the process of switching over from manual drum to power disc.

Very important--make sure the bleeder valves are at the highest point on the caliper. Otherwise air will be trapped in the caliper and unable to escape even when bled.

Okay - but do the valves point straight up or to the back?

My Haynes manual shows them pointing to the back - but I think the flex hose will rub on the stabilizer arms connected to lower control arm - so I'm thinking of switching them around.

Thanks. Like I said that's what the book showed, but those flex leads look pretty close.

Thanks again for the info.
