Brake pipe replacement

I have to replace the front brake pipes in my 1987 RHD 110. How far down do I have to tear the front to do it? The passsenger pipe passes behind the radiator. Thanks for any advice

Sorry, it's right hand drive. It appears not all years are the same. Pipe for left front wheel goes from proportioning valve forward and across the front of the engine compartment. Some seem to go across the bulkhead.

I ran mine down vertical from the valve, up the chassis towarda the front of the truck, under the motor mount and right across the front Crossmember/bumper support, then behind the fender well to the soft line connection.

Took about 45 min to make

Thanks, did you have to take anything out of the engine compartment to do it? I'm due for a teardown, but not yet. I just want to be able to stop.

Nope, I ran the line with everything in place. My Ps lines run almost the same way but in reverse direction. FYI I don't have a fan shroud, so you may have to take that out of the way.

I also used bulk line and flared it in place with a Harbor freight flare kit.
