    Dear ShoForum members, I'm looking for the brake line block set (I believe that's what it's called.) for my 1994 Ford Taurus SHO (ATX). Your help in locating is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Edward

    Do you have a different descriptor? Do you need something like a proportioning valve for the rear? The abs module with all the lines coming out of it up front?

    All of the lines can be bought prebent individually thru SHOnut Performance or from SHOnut via SHOSource. They are all stainless steel and the quality is second to none. I recently bought a complete set and am in the process of swapping them all out on my 91+.

    I'm not sure if that is still available new and I don't recall a rebuilt unit aftermarket. You may have to roll the dice on a used one. I see a few on ebay and there are some probably on a parts car in the classifieds on this forum. Then you can try an email to shosource or try SV&HOdan member on this forum.

    Unless Chad can find one in inventory somewhere.

    I get the part number for the pump, but it looks like it is sold seperate from the block manifold thing with the lines coming out. I am having a time getting that number. When I look it up in the diagram the next link goes to a picture description that does not match.

    Good evening Luigi, please accept my apology for incorrectly stating my SHO brake line issue. My mechanic said its not the ABS module with all the lines coming out in front that's bad, but the brake line "BLOCK"? Not sure exactly what the block looks like. Can you help identify the part I need? Thanks, Edward

    Is it the bias valve in the rear of the car? Are you having problems with your rear brakes?

    He said the brake line Blocks in the front of the car need replacing.

    The only thing I can think of up front is the block at the abs pump site. Chad, you did the line work recently anything else up front?

    A pic is worth 63 words to narrow this down.

    My car is stored at a friends house 30miles away or I'd go poke around and look.

    The lines come out of the Master and go to the ABS pump. From there, there are four separate lines that run to each corresponding corner of the car. The only "block" I can think of is the bias block that the two rear lines run thru.

    I received this message and pics from my mechanic. It's the block on the rail under the master so to speak. 20200227_100212.jpg 20200227_100159.jpg

    You'll have to find that on a parts car or find someone here that has a parts car. That plastic block is not available new any longer. All it is, is a plastic retainer that holds the brake lines to the fender wall. Yours looks pretty good. Why does he say it needs replacing?

    Thanks for letting me know what that is. I texted him about it and awaiting his reply. Those pics are online examples. My SHO is white in color. Do the brake lines screw into the plastic block? Maybe we can just bypass it with an end to end line connector. Btw, do you know the OEM part number for this plastic block? Are both front and rear brake lines connected to it? Thanks, EB

    The lines coming off the ABS pump stop at the block and are joined to the lines that continue on to each corner of the car. All the plastic block does is secure the lines to the fender wall.

    If it's easy enough, go get one from a parts car. I'm sure a regular Taurus with ABS probably has the same or similar part on it.

    You don't need that block. It does hold the brake lines from vibration, however, it really is just holding the connectors for the brake lines to screw together. You can push the connectors out of the block.

    I'm making a set of brake lines from the abs right now.

    I have used ones if yours is broken and you want to keep it all stock. Your mechanic will just have to push out the old lines and push in some new lines?

    The lines rust out right above that where the coating starts...I have seen it way too many times.
