Default replacing brake lines

I'm replacing all the rigid and flexible brake lines on my 1966 1200a Pickup and I can't seem to find the hose that goes from the brake booster down to the 4 way tee union that is mounted to the frame (that the drive's front brake hose connects to. What should I do. This car is new to me so I'm just learning how the car is engineer and where to find parts, so any information is good information.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Can you post a picture of what you're asking about?

I don't have a photo, but the union is a small brass rectangle the size of a pack of gum. The main hydraulic hose goes through it and connects to the drivers side front brake line.

I had mine made at a local hydraulic hose place for my '64 1300.

Did you replace the hose with the weird threaded end? Did you reuse the tee block?

My 1300 has a short length of metal brake line off the booster that connects to a flexible line that goes down to the tee block. I took the flex line to a local Goodyear Parker store and they were able to match the ends and fabricate a new line. I reused the tee block.

This doesn't really apply to the original post, but looks like a good post for this question. Does anybody know if the small plastic push in clips that hold the brake lines to the frame on Scout lls are available? They seem to have held up pretty damn good for over 40 years, but I broke two up in the front when installing a new brake line from the proportioning valve back to the rear brakes. Tried to just replace just the flex line to the rear end, but the flare nut rounded. About 3 hours to install new rear springs, over half a day and lots of cussing to install the hard brake line. That's why its been sitting up in my loft for over 2 years after I installed all the front lines in the set.
