+1 on a thread for us 'seasoned' guys .
Don't worry about forgetting this ****. I'm sure some of us will remember bits and pieces , and we'll put the puzzle back together.

A history. This truck was parked in my yard in April of '09, by a friend of my daughter. She finally accepted $200 for it in Sept. So far new battery, solenoid, starter, flushed the radiator, oil and filter. Yesterday all new front wheel bearing and seals. On the test drive the brakes went out completely. Thank the good Lord no snow yet. And it is now parked in my yard instead of a limestone drive. Damn, my knees hurt. I'll see what I can find today.

OK, I can't navigate this site worth a ****. I found the brake line inside the frame rail by the gas tank is leaking. I want to replace the entire line, but don't know where the right fittings are. Any help sincerely appreciated.
