    my local parts stores stock the replacement lines with the 1 end flaired to the oring style you need. under 10 bucks. i find mine at napa. thay come in about a 18" long yellow package. same flair as the tbi fuel oring flair for the tbi motors.

    I just get a 12" piece of steel brake line with the right size fitting and bend it myself. I think it was a 3/8" line.

    wont work for him . he has the newer style with the oring flair on the end. your trick would work if it was 73-80 style box.

    the local napa or the carquest didn't have anything for a replacement line. the carquest did have a fitting for the oring to a 6AN fitting. then i they had a hydraulic line elbow that i have to cut the crimping peice off and can run a 3/8" powersteering hose on.
    cost me about $35 for all that. but its way better than the factory stuff.
