Mystery fuel or brake line?

Ok guys, I started work on the brake lines of my 1960 spider and need some help.. As you know this car was bought in boxes, all brake and fuel lines for the most part off the car... So this line is 1/4 inch... bigger then the 3/16 brake lines but uses the same style of fittings.. where does this guy go????

Also, Any photos you guys can give me of the brake lines coming off the brass stop light fitting and how they are routed?

Grazie!
Todd

Maybe to the fluid reservoir, but it doesn't look right to me. It might be for a different car.

I think that's the line between the reservoir and MC - it is larger in diameter than the high-pressure lines. The shape doesn't look quite right, but it may have gotten bent in storage.

How about from the MC to the "T" that splits to the two front lines and the single line that runs to the rear? A flex line then runs up to a "T" on the rear axle with 2 hard lines then running to each RW cylinder.

hi Gordon,

I think not, BC I have the 3/16 line is in place that goes from the MC to the brass stoplight fitting that branches to the left/right front cylinders and also to the rear.. As, far as the brass T on the rear axle from the flex hose that is 3/16.. Just has to be for a different car...

Might it be a fuel line? Is your Giulietta a normale or veloce? Do Giulietta veloces have an electric fuel pump at the rear (I know that Giulia veloces do)? And if so, might it run from the fuel tank --> fuel pump?

Or maybe it's from a Chevy truck, and just fell into one of the boxes.
