Hi,  I have a 1966 Vitesse 6 Convertible and am in the process of sorting out the Rear Brakes.  I removed the Rear Flexi Hoses and found that they are 4 inches longer than the recommended GBH175 Hoses.  The GBH175 Hoses are too short when I tried to fit them, so I tried the Front Flexi Hose GBH216 and they turned out to be a better fit?  Any Ideas!!   Many Thanks Martyn

Hello Martyn.

I have checked the ST Parts List Binder (1600cc) for the flexi brake hose part numbers, pertaining to your vehicle:

front - 132958

rear - 115459

How the above equates to your hose codes I do not know, but at least you now have the correct ST reference to use as a x-ref.

Hope that assists ??

Regards.

Richard.

Martyn.

Your GBH references are certainly correct.

My additional observations are:

1. the wrong hose supplied against the part number

2. and this is a long shot, that the layout of the copper pipe at the rear of the vehicle has been laid out incorrectly; this may result in the correct hoses being too short. It's a highly unlikely scenario but worth mentioning in order to check.

3. is the rear running gear of the car standard - i.e. not upgraded from another vehicle.

Regards.

Richard.
