Hi Wade,
We have a 49 3100, and this is the way ours was. The hard steel line from
the junction at the tranny crossmember  (rt side) to the rear rubber line
actually rusted out and developed a pin hole several years ago. I replaced
the steel line and also the rubber line.
>The rear hard brake line on my 49 3100 doesn't look original because it
>is not bent well and there is only one hose in the back that runs from
>the frame the the right side of the axle into the hard line.  Then the
>hard line runs to the right to backing plate a short distance and to the
>left all the way across the axle.  I thought that usually the hoses ran
>directly down to the backing plate from the hard lines.  If anyone knows
>about this I would really appreciate the help because I my dad went
>ahead and bought 4 brake hoses.
