  • Brake plumbing

    Just getting started on quick build kit and I've been scouring all the info i can find trying to pin down the routing of the brake plumbing through the fuselage, does anyone have a few pictures they can share? In particular transition from gear leg into fuselage.
    Thanks in advance,
    Bill

    Usually there is a section of rubber line that connects the fuselage to the L/G legs. On that "rib" at the top of the L/G leg - usually a bulkhead fitting goes there. Aluminum hard line (usually but not the only way) goes down from the bulkhead fitting to the brake caliper with a little bit of a loop. Mark

      Mark,
      Thanks for the quick response, so enter the fuselage anywhere that will be concealed by the fairing with flex from the bulkhead fitting at top of gear to the master cylinder?
      Thanks,
      Bill

        Did you see this yet? It doesn't entirely answer your questions but might have some helpful info:

          Yes, I saw that very helpful. Looking to make some headway without painting myself into a corner and I was concerned about conflict with other systems competing for the same space... fuel, rudder cables, etc. I was kind of getting stuck between thought and action, progress requires both.
          thanks,
          Bill

            If you go to my EAA builders log website you can see how I routed the plumbing for my Patrol. I also have full CAD drawings of my install.
