If the hose is supposed to go under the arm per Cord bulletin #24, the perhaps the cylindrical rubber piece shown the above photo is mounted "upside down". If the clamp remains in the same place as shown in the photo, but the arm was passed through the rubber piece before being mounted, then the hose could indeed go under the arm. Can anyone confirm that this would be correct?

On the last Cord I put together, this is how I ran the brake hose, it always goes under the trailing arm. My set up has been modified a little bit for this driver. When I ordered the new front brake lines, I was disappointed that they have really cheapened them up, no wear near as “hefty” as originals. When installing I added an additional rubber hose and zip tied it together

It appears that the rubber hose in the attached picture is too large in diameter.
The metal clamp and its position are ok. The brake hose has to loop down under the trailing arm as per Service Bulletin No 24

George Van Nostrand tells me that the rubber hose is slid over the steering arm and the brake line . The clamp just holds the rubber hose in place.
I will get to check this out on my Cord in the not too distant future and post pictures.
The attached picture arrived from George, it shows how the Factory did it.
Thanks George.

Today I tried fitting the piece of hose and clamping bracket to one steering arm.
It worked out just fine. The hose is 1 1/4" inside diameter and can be forced over the end of the steering arm at the bolted connection end. You don't need to touch the ball joint end unless that is apart.
