Ready to run the brake lines on my car and was going to install a bias gauge and need a little help. The guage came with 3 different connectors for each guage, one large to fit onto the back of the guage, one straight small fitting and one that is a tee with female fittings at a 90 and one male? Do I use all of these??? Also when running the lines do they run from the master cylinder to the guage and then to the calipers or do you tee off of the master cylinder and run off one side to the guage and the other side to the calipers (doing this seems like you would trap air in the line).
Thanks for the help!!!!! Everyone on this forum has been a great help!!!

I run the lines from the master cylinder to the gauges then to the calipers. Just one less place to bleed the brakes.

I run from the master cylinder straight to the calipers with a tee in the midle serving the guages. However, my guages have bleeders. I don't see how you would set them up not to "trap" air in the line if you didn't have bleeders on the guages.
In order to hook them up, I had to trudge to the parts store to get some fittings, my kit lacked the female-female fitting to run the brake line into the guage.
