Looking into removing and re-routing brake lines.

Re: Anyone remove the ABS Bosch pump?

I have done that on one car when the pump failed due to user error... we basically just made short pieces to connect the lines. It only took about 15~20 minutes to do. It was Really easy to follow, but we did get codes kicked up and the check engine light.

Jeff,

What size Tee connectors/unions did you use to reconnect the brake lines?
Not sure what the bracket is your referring to..??

Re: Anyone remove the ABS Bosch pump?

I removed the ABS pump today and will take to work to find out the thread sizes. There are 2 different size ports, both seem to be metric..

I will need to get 2 female brake tube tees. One for front and one for the rear. I went to NAPA with the pump and they had nothing I could use..

The Bosch ABS pump with bracket weighs 9.7 lbs.

Re: Anyone remove the ABS Bosch pump?

The 5 smaller brake line ports on the ABS pump are 10m x 1.0 and the one larger right rear brake line port is 12m x 1.0 I made a small manifold/junction box out of T-6061 and will install later on today..

I just copied how the top of the ABS pump is with the 4 brake lines on top & the 2 master cylinder lines on the side. The ABS pump is labled LF, RF which is the 2 bottom ports (looking at the 1st pic). LR, RR are the 2 top ports, RR being the larger port.
I will see how the brakes work and I may have to install a manual brake proportional valve off the MC if I start to lock up the front skinnies..

I did mess up on my discription of the brake routing. The 2 top side left ports are front left/left rear.. The 2 top right side ports are from the master cylinder Front/Rear, the rear being the larger port then the rest. The 2 side ports are front right/right rear.

It can confuse you the way it's labled on the ABS pump into thinking the 2 top right ports go to the brakes.


Since I have easy access to all brake lines with the ABS removed, now is a good time to remove all old brake fluid with my hand held vacuum pump.

Re: Anyone remove the ABS Bosch pump?

I ended up making another brake manifold, I was not happy with one of the port threads it was giving me trouble when installing last night.

This manifold I labled with a letter punch set.

Once the rear is completed today, I will go thru the proper brake bleeding procedure. I did use my vacuum pump to get all the old fluid out of each brake line.

Having someone pump the brakes for you is the best.. The hand held vacuum pump works OK!

Re: Anyone remove the ABS Bosch pump?

Finally took the Mach out for a test drive & all is good with the brake manifold I made. Braking is good and straight without locking up the front skinnies. I'm not going to need a manual proportioning valve..

No leaks from manifold connections!!
