    Doug, I made them . I wanted to make new hardlines but I couldn't find anyone locally who could do a decent flare on new tubing using the original nuts. Those nuts are metric and nothing I've been able to find works. The flare needs to be pretty big to fit correctly and my local Tubes-N-Hoses couldn't make them. So I used part of the original lines, put some modified AN fittings on them, and made up some braided stainless teflon lined hoses from there to the steering valve, where I used banjo fittings to connect to it. I think they turned out pretty good.

    Chevynut, those are awesome. You wouldn't have part numbers and where you sourced all your parts from do you? I can't find anyone out here in Central California that will touch them because of the special metric fittings. You'd think with as many that use those C4 racks being used in swaps, there would be lots of parts available. Your lines are incredible. You are a true craftsman! Thanks for the pictures too!

    I got everything from Summit, as I recall, and there's around $100+ in parts. I'm pretty sure the hose and hose ends are Russell or Aeroquip and other parts are Earl's. Here's the parts I used:

    2 AN4 stainless couplings (machined to fit over stock stainless lines) EAR-SS981504ERL or equiv.
    3 straight AN4 hose ends (to match hose chosen)
    1 90 degree AN4 hose end (to match hose chosen)
    2 12mm short straight banjo fittings 997645ERL or equiv.
    2 12mm x 1.25 banjo bolts
    AN4 braided stainless teflon hose

    I turned the couplings down on my lathe to remove the threads on one end, and drilled them out to 1/4" deep enough to get the lines in them a ways (~1/2" or so). Then I silver-soldered them to the stock stainless lines. Then all you do is make up the teflon hoses and attach them.

    I built a second set recently for a customer's car:

    Chevynut, you are the man! Thanks for the info. I don't have access to a lathe, so, If I can't find someone here who does would you be interested in making up another set just like to ones you have?

    I think I already have a couple but would have to check. Let me know if you need them.

    Thanks chevynut! I will check with my last machinist tomorrow afternoon to see if he'll try and tackle it. I also saw the high pressure and low pressure lines you made for yours. Those were awesome as well. I'll have to tackle those a little later. My big thing right now is getting the rack back in the truck with lines on it so I can position my motor 2" lower and a little farther back to build motor mounts. I'll let you know if I need them. Thanks again!
    Doug
