Brake hoses

I am rebuilding my factory 914-6 brakes and found that the braded steel line dont fit through the tab on the strut.What do they want you to do drill a bigger hole in it to makk it work.
Also coud someone tell me if the pins that hold the pads in are the same on a four banger or can I buy some some where..

Dumb question that will piss people off... but...

Where did you buy the brake lines from ??

The ones I use (notice I didnt say sell) fit just fine.

The pins for the rear calipers are the same.. the fronts will require you to get some from a 911T.

If you need too... you can use a Unibit to enlarge the hole for the brake line.

The ones they sold you are for the 4cyl cars that use a locking spring plate. The ones you need use a U shaped piece of metal to keep tension against the line.

Are you sure they didn't give you the late-model version? The 70-72 lines are different.

Went thru the same deal. I turned the one end down on the lathe. Don't enlarge the hole, it makes your existing clamps, brackets and c shaped spring impossible to use as intended.
