    I searched the forums but didn't find the info I need.

    1985 K3500 Rubber hose from Resevoir to Master Cylinder (resevoir is on firewall and feeds to the master cylinder through this line) - mine is all dry and cracked, can I just replace it with a piece of fuel line? I'm afraid it will bust a leak someday and leave me heavy footed.

    Thanks, Kelly.

    I don't know about gas line, but there are hoses rated for hydraulic fluid, those that you hook up on your tranny cooler lines, those should be fine with the brake fluid

    I scooped the plastic resevoir and hose from a '95 Ford Ranger at the junkyard. Works awesome, but the hose is slightly larger than factory GM I guess. I just added a small hose clamp and it's fine.

    Just a possible alternative.

    Might also be able to find the correct GM stuff from www.lmctruck.com
