Default Borgeson Conversion MC Brake Line Routing

Good Morning All,

I have been perusing the forum for information on the Borgeson conversion I am doing as part of my 1973 LS3/TH6060 conversion. The body is off and I have all of the brake lines installed along with the proportioning valve, which fits with about 3/16" to spare to the Borgeson unit. I was originally under the impression I would have to relocate the proportioning valve, but it seems that is not the case, great! The car has power brakes.

The thread below has a lot of information and seems to indicate that the stock lines from the master cylinder can be used with just a bit of tweaking on a 1973, can anybody confirm this?

The project car came with all new brake lines/fuel lines/ etc. but did not include these two lines, so I would like to confirm before I buy them.

It fits on my 72 which looks very similar to your 73. It might take a little pushing around as I recall but the lines do stay put.
