Been helping reassemble a RHD '95 soft dash that has been completely stripped for restoration and have run into a problem. The ABS modulator had been taken off along with some of the brake pipes. Now we are trying to work out which pipe goes into which port. RAVE says that all ports are numbered (which they are) and the pipes have sleeves with matching numbers. Well, some of the pipes have sleeves, some don't and most of those that do have faded so the numbers can't be read any more. We've managed to identify where some go but aren't sure about others. Looking at it from the front of the car there's four ports along the top and the pipes are fitted as follows (from left to right as you look at it):
Port 25 - Left Front caliper, front hose
Port 26 - Right Front caliper, front hose
Port 22 - Pipe to a rear brake
Port 21 - Pipe to the other rear brake (this one is correct as the number is still visible)

There are also two vacant ports, one of the front beneath port 26 and another on the side marked 13. What connects to these? We have two pipes coming from the accumulator but it seems the pipes have been bent while it has been off the car so although it's fairly certain that they go to the two spare ports, we can't work out how the pipes should run.

Can anyone help either with a diagram or a photo of the pipes connected to their ABS modulator?

Try this.

The accumulator top brake pipe goes to port 13 on the traction control block, and the lower pipe goes to the port which is directly below port 26.

And this.

The pictures are from different cars, both 1993 hard dash cars. That will not make any difference though. The first one I replaced a leaking modulator so upgraded to one with the traction control block, and had exactly the same trouble that you have been having. It is out there somewhere on the internet - probably on LR4x4.com on my thread on the first picture car.

Thanks for that, the first picture confirms the accumulator pipes have been bent so aren't pointing where they are supposed to. It also looks like we've got the middle two pipes, numbers 26 and 22 reversed. If you've got copper going to the front brakes, then the two that drop down and go to the rear go to 26 and 21 and not 22 and 21 as we currently have them. Any chance you can have a quick look and confirm?

21 and 22 do go to the rear.

23 is front NS (UK) and the back of the two pipes at the bracket on the inner wing in the wheel arch.
24 is front OS (UK) and the back of the two pipes.
25 is front NS (UK) and the front of the two pipes.
26 is front OS (UK) and front of the two pipes.

Hope that helps.

Yes it does, thanks very much. I'm back over there tomorrow evening so will check and confirm we've got them correct. Then we can put the engine back in......
