Brake lines at rear on a 94 YJ.

Does anyone have access to the parts manual to give me the jeep part number ( or a source) for the brake line from the passenger side rear drum brake to the 'T' piece? Po managed to crush it so its completely closed and no brake action on that side.
I may only have a few posts here, but a lot of experience on others -81, 84, 86 Porsche 928
1929 'A' street rod with a 4.3L V6
98 Land Rover Discovery, 2012 Hyundai SanteFe
Winnebago 2003 Brave 32V, ProLine 21WA boat
oh, and a 94 YJ! All here in Cary, NC

Just replaced mine this weekend, same part. Easiest way is to clip the old line away from the end fittings. Save the old for bending template. Bring the fittings to the auto parts store and get a slightly longer length of straight 3/16" tubing with new end fittings. With a tubing cutter, flare end kit and a little patience, you can bend up and install a new line in little time. Remember to bleed the brakes to get the air out. Don't worry about ditching the protective wire wrap that came on originally.

I managed to borrow the tube double flare kit and a tubing bender ( optional) from a coworker. Got a two minute lesson on how to flare the end of brake line, it's simple. Don't use plain steel lines. The current standard has a rust resistant coating, dark green at my parts store. Upgrade would be the copper nickel blend but it's pricey, and available online.

I sucked out all the old brake fluid from the master cylinder and put fresh in. Will do the passenger side line when it warms up a bit. Trying not to fix things that aren't broken.

Good luck. This is a straightforward fix.

I did mine with the copper nickle and it's a lot easier to work with than regular steel. You had said that the PO had pinched the line off. I'm going to guess that he couldn't get the fitting apart to begin with. If that's the case and you can't get it all apart plan on 2 wheel cylinders and the new rubber line. When I did mine I did all of the lines. I picked up a 25' roll of copper nickle off eBay for $27. It was enough for everything.
