Doesn't matter a whole lot. I run 3/16" to the front and 1/4" to the rear because that's what size fitings are on the hoses. Yes I use stock hoses and for a dirt street stock they are fine. They are certified to a standard. Are the stainless ones?

Hi Joe, if it helps, (and even if it don't, LOL).....I'm gonna agree with Outlaw....(we Okies have to stick together Ya know)...

Having said that, I don't really disagree with powerglides either.....it's just not a real big deal....

I run all 3/16 when I install new ones....But alot of the local streestock guys just use the stockers....

Good Luck,
snowman

no matter whats on the end stainless braided, or rubber needs to be replaced often, i go thru them all the time.
both stainless and rubber.
from just track snags, binds, crashes, and just blowing them up(did that in the staging area once).

3/16" lines, dual masters (wilwood). No problems and work fine. (3/61 joe?). Giggle.

Hey don't pick on Joe so much. I can see that he is not the best with the key board. Joe with the dual masters set up you should go with the 3/16 line.

Assuming you want your rear brakes working first (more powerful), big line to the rear.

Sorry Joe. Didn't mean no harm. I have to check and re-check all my "typing". Big fat hands and 4 time broken right hand make it difficult too. Race on BIG JOE!!
