Front Brake Hose was created by 1748 S
Our cars require brake hose clamps to the steering arms to keep the hoses from rubbing the tires. So I purchased the clamp and clip from Stan. No instructions for installation came with these. Plus my car did not have the metal clips or the rubber band to secure the hose. Electrical friction tape was on my car. It worked but now I need to see pictures of how this is installed correctly. Thanks for any pictures of original or restored pieces.

thanks for the perfect picture. I sure wouldn't have imagined this is how they fit. Sadly my car did not come with these on it.

nice photo, the band looks like 1" slice of 2 1/2" radiator hose would work. The spindle grease overflow copper tube has a metal band to hold it to the swing arm, very nice details. Nice to see minimum use of cad hardware preserving factory type appearance. There were two types of outer joint covers, this 37? has four screws holding it to spindle housing. There was another earlier style that has a fine threaded sleeve tube. I once asked JM why the change? He answered my question, "It was because of cost, and cheaper to make as the company wanted to save $ in 1937".
I am not sure of the details but if anyone knows, this was a great suspension, not often discussed and light years ahead of anything else at the time.
Built from the gathered L29 experience with improved weight and c/v spindle configuration

I have read that when the engineers studied the Citroen FWD gear box they also looked at the Citroen wish bone suspension but opted for their own design to handle the weight. The Cord suspension is simple and robust but during the current restoration of my Cord I wished that they had made provision for adjusting the locations of the trailing arms with self aligning inner bearings and shims for the outer bearings. My front end had been damaged during a collision in the dim past. It has been straightened out the best we could do. I should imagine others have faced the same problem.
Overall when you get under the front end of a Cord and study it they did a great job maintaining simplicity of design within a pretty compact area.
Hat's off to the design team. The members present at the early Auburn Meets had the privilege of speaking with the engineers who designed the cars. Pity we can't turn back the clock to ask more questions.

As per Cord bulletin number 24 ,, “when reassembling that the hose goes UNDER the arm and that the rubber clamp is in the proper position on the arm and brake tube.
