Front brake hose part number....

Post by 37Packard » Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:33 am

I finally found a guy to adjust the brakes on my Packard and he says I need the front brake hose on the driver's side. He said it's compressed or something like that which is why it pulls to the right. He said it's a 3/16" hose and about 17" long. He found several numbers on it including 08129, 13718, 4084, and G (or 6) Y-3/16-5013. Can someone please tell me which is the correct number and where I can find one? I think I should replace the one on the passenger side too so would that be the same as the one on the driver's side? I called my local NAPA store and he couldn't find it online or in his book. Thanks in advance....

Sorry, I don't have an interchange number. If you had a cooperative counterman at an auto parts store you could no doubt just match it up by visual comparison. But it's probably easier to just buy a new one from Kanter's. And if one is questionable, best to replace all 3.

I ordered all three from Kanter. There were two sellers who had these on Ebay but one is in Argentina and the other is in the US but only ships on Saturdays so I went with Kanter even though their prices were the highest. Thanks again, Dave.... :D

Even though I've never heard of problems with them, some of the hoses sourced from outside the US and not DOT approved; doesn't make sense to go on the cheap with critical brake parts.
