    I purchased a set a few weeks ago and had the same issue with the 3-way block. I was told I had the last set. We ended up having to purchase a 3-way tee. We asked for instructions (see below). Other than that the installation went well.

I then mounted the brackets on the car install the hose so you can see where to put the bracket so you have even slack when you steer the font wheel right and left.

    >Remove old and new bracket, lay the new bracket on the old one and weld them together. The other way would be to just mount the new bracket to the cars frame so that the brake lines have enough play and slack for proper movement.

    Did you end up getting your stuff swapped out?

    I got the missing tee, and finished the back brake lines this weekend. The tee looked just like the one I had sourced as a back-up....off Jeg's or Summit, etc.

    I ended up bending the bracket to mount closer to a factory configuration. This allowed be to get away with minimal line bending!

    Matt,

    Just installed a set of these hoses a couple weeks ago at SCU inc. We had to bend the tab on the supplied fitting block 90 degrees before it would work on my 91 SC.

    They feel about he same to me, but I've only done some mild braking since getting the stainless hoses installed. The brakes have never been very impressive or either of my SCs and even with the 13" Cobra front brakes they still feel kinda weak compared to the brakes on my 16 Expedition. That said, they are good enough for how I use the car.
