Rusted Out Brake Pipe

2012 Sightseer on Ford F-53 Chassis. V-100

Was in south Texas and brakes suddenly went extremely mushy.

Turns out the 12 foot long brake pipe between motor and rear wheels rusted through and lost 90% of brake fluid.

Found part number in diagram found on Ford parts website. You guessed it, all parts available with the exception of the “obsolete” 12 foot long brake pipe.

Seeking input and expertise.

I’ve found copper/nickel brake pipe up to 72” long.

Thoughts on using two of these end to end to replace the rusted pipe?

Or do I find a specialty shop to custom make a one piece replacement?

Are coated braided stainless steel hoses a possibility or advisable?

My money would be on a shop that does brakes, and can get them bleed properly, but that is just me. Most good shops can make up a single piece line with no splices.

Most any brake shop can make any common brake line (FYI, they are referred to as “brake lines” and not pipes.)
