Frame bracket for brake lines?

Anyone have a picture of the bracket where the hard brake line meets the soft line in the front of a 90. On my old frame (1985) the holes in the bracket were the perfect size for the soft line to past through. On the new frame (1997) the hole in the bracket is almost twice the size it needs to be? Wondering how to secure the lines to the bracket. It doesn't seem secure the way I'm doing it with 2 fender washers and nut.

They have a big nut on the soft line on NAS D90s.

These are extended stainless lines I was talking about Tom. This is my 97 NAS frame, hope this helps.

even with the nuts on there, it seems kind of half-assed.

Not sure I understand? The stainless line has two nuts that secure the line to the support, the other is a double female bc they did not sell double fluted female ends? Any way good luck

Tom, you could always weld up the hole and redrill it, or maybe weld or braze a thick washer to the bracket for a more permanent solution. Is there enough room for fender washers both sides plus the jam nut and star washer? Are you using the thin jam nuts?

Brian your setup looks fine though I try to avoid those adapters if I can. They do work well in a pinch. You can always save the proper english nuts (that sounds funny) from the old lines. BTW the hard line in your first pic looks like it might be cross threaded.

I thought the same thing when I saw it last night. I was out there til well past midnight messing with it. I pulled the wheel, I think it is just the angle of the picture. I replaced all my lines, when I swapped the frame and no one had female ends only male ones. It was my first time using those fittings and they where a pain in the ass, but I couldn't find anyone that had brake lines in stock back in Feb. I might replace in the future but for now they are fine.

Does paragon performance still sell the rover brake line kits for the SS flexible lines? I need to dig mine out.
