Brake & Fuel Tube Routing

Post by Don »

I'm installing new brake and fuel tubing in my WC-21 military half ton. The old ones were gone when I got the truck.

At the frame cross-member just in front of the gas tank, do the tubes go through the holes in the cross member or under it?

Thanks,
Don

I really don't remember Don, and wouldn't want to give wrong advice.

There have to be some illustrations somewhere in the manuals or on the 'net

Our Portland Oregon military truck club has a tour Saturday of some of the members' shops and collections. One of them has a WC-4 I can look at and get the information.

The lines go through the cross member on the half-tons:

No problem. Now you just need to fish everything through there! 8)
