Hello all, 

 

I am new to the forum and the z community, but learning a lot about these cars.

I bought a 78 280z, which came with the 280zx rear disc conversion. 

I have the problem that the ebrake bracket that holds the sheath when the car is on the ground, it hits right on the brake flex line.

It has already damaged one set of lines and i dont want to damage another set.

Has one had the same issue and what was your solution?

My only ideas is get rid of the ebrake and cut the bracket or cut the hardline mount and reweld it out of the way and rebend the hardline to suit.

thanks

Don't do anything permanent until you have fully researched this problem.  There are several solutions.

Any suggestion? Ive looked around for the 280zx conversion, but no one mentions the bracket hitting the flex line. I saw a post here and they mentioned it, but also with another issue. they answered the other issue, but nothing was provided as a solution to the flex line.

Thanks, i found that thread, but the pictures link did not work. Thanks for the help, i decided to make my own bracket and weld it to the chassis.
