    brake lines

    so I replaced the brake lines on my 69 and as i was shopping for the new lines I noticed in the comments form 3 different suppliers that they don't fit correctly. On the pass rear side the fitting was pointing down instead of up to go in the cylinder, I think the lines I replaced were original to car and the line that was there had been re bent to make fit. Could it have come from factory that way or maybe someone replaced it a long time ago? What is up with the wrong bend in this part from different manufactures?
