2600 Spider brake line fittings

Hi all, I am considering changing the brake lines on my 63 front disc brake rear drum brake spider. Does anyone have a list of the fittings needed for the brake lines themselves?
Cheers, John

This is a great list, Serge!

I think this should become a sticky thread.

Thank you Ruedi,

So I have completed the chart : translation of some French words and meaning of I and J.

Best thing should be to have the same for 2000 and 2600 with 4 discs as well.

For the 2000 I have done the work but as I have adapted front discs, it is not correct :

Small world - I have just taken the servo out of my 2600 spider and was considering putting a bypass pipe in so I could drive the car while it was being rebuilt.

The two fittings on top of the servo routes B and C have a different sized fitting . Needing a 11mm and 12mm spanner to remove. Is this is what is referenced as filet B input 7/16 C output 3/8 ?

No. These references are to thread diameter (all Girling stuff is Imperial, although I'm pretty sure Alfa made the brake lines and fittings in-house). What needs to be added is thread count. For example, I don't remember if it's 7/16-20 or 7/16-24 an will have to dig up a list I found on the Internet some years ago.

To explain my drawing : the fluid goes from the reservoir to the calipers and pistons.
On one tube, imput is always the entry of the tube and output the exit.
So on tube B for example, the imput is on the master cylinder and the output is on the servo (which is in fact the imput of the servo = very confusing)

From my point of view (but my memory can be wrong) the 2 fitting on the servo should be the same : diameter of the tube = 8/16 - Form = F - Diameter of the fitting = 3/8

Ruedi is right : thread count is needed. I should have it. I come back ...

Updated once again. On Master Cylinder we have 2 mals but clearly I have a doubt on the fact that both are 7/16x20. May be it is 7/16x20 + 7/16x24 (or 3/8x24). The 2 tubes have different diameter (In = 1/4, Out = 3/16)

Sorry, don't take into account the last post. All is clear now on the drawing online upstairs.
