Brake information on 1991

The front wheel brake hose broke and I took it to the local repair shop and was told that the fitting were badly rusted and a bracket had to be fabricated and would cost big bucks. Having worked on cars in my youth I am thinking about possibily doing the work myself since I am retired and have plenty of time on my hands. I only put about 100 miles a year on the truck so it is not really worth buying another truck mainly to put my boat in the water twice a year.
My question is, I need to find out how to identify the parts I need to replace the defective hose fittings.
The motor appears to be in great shape and in recent years I have replaced a lot of parts that one would expect with a truck this old.
Any help or information would be appreciated

Re: Brake information on 1991

If the line that threads into the new hose is siezed/rusted up, then I would make a new line for it. You normally cannot buy a factory bent line for a truck that old, but if you remove the entire line, buy one that same length or close at a parts store (check thread size) and carefully bent and shape the line to fit.

As far as the bracket goes, just make something to secure the line to the chassis.

Like $8.00 or something. Cheap fix, just time consuming
