Can anyone provide a picture or describe proper mounting and orientation for 1965 ServiCar Hydraulic Brake Tee 83566-51?
And, is the attached picture of the correct Tee?

The tee is on the rear differential bolted to the hole in the web next to the speedo drive. It sits on top of the web with the hole for the pressure switch pointing away from the speedo drive.

Thanks for the info Robbie. Since the tee I pictured above would not orient the way you described, I had to dig a little deeper before I found out that the ServiCar uses the same brake tee as the FLs 58-69. I had always been under the (wrong) impression that 83566-51 was only used by ServiCar, and the FL tee was a 42310-58, because those are the numbers I saw in my early books. I am fairly certain that the tee I pictured above is actually a -70 part number for an FL. I purchased it in an oem bag labeled 83566-51 a few years back (stapled shut) and was none the wiser until now! :oops:
