It was a metal line. I took the line off and went to the auto parts store and got new line (had to get 3 pieces, some unions and a tubing bender). I was pretty nervous about this project but just came in from the driveway -- the new line is in and routed through all of its original clips!
Unfortunately the brake light is still on and the brake pedal is mushy but there are no leaks. I filled the resrevoir with brake fluid too. I think I need to bleed these but I have absolutely no idea how to do that. I am wondering if I should take it to Sears for that part?
Let me know what you think and thanks for the response!
