Hi. I don't think that you will get one, or need one. I worked in a motorist accessory store for 10 years. We would make brake pipes up for customers but you need to take off the old ones to use as a pattern. You bend them into shape as you fit them, the replacements are much softer as they will be copper. They are relatively low cost. A local garage may make them for you, they will probably have the flaring tool needed to make the ends. Bleeding the new system is the fun part! Good luck, Matt B

I can't tell you the length but the diameter of brake lines is commonly 3/16" and rarely bigger - some older vehicles and heavier vehicle use 1/4".
The size of the pipe is intuitive by simple comparison or measuring with a caliper but there is several different threads, lengths, diameters of pipe nuts in common use and it is important to get these right first time.
It is also very important the replacement pipe is formed exactly as the original, follows exactly the original route and is adequately secured.
When one brake pipe fails usually others aren't far behind and the failure of a pipe should signal a very close examination of the others, especially looking for corrosion scale or pitting close to the wheels. Replacing four or five pipes on a large vehicle can use a whole 25 foot roll of pipe.
It might be better to invest in a cheap pipe flaring kit and the materials to produce your own pipes - or remove the old pipes and ask a local repairer to make new pipes to those patterns. That was my job as an apprentice and I must have produced a mile of pipes for outside customers.
Look at the back of the front wheels there is 2 black pipes, 1 for the brakes that conect to the brake unit (callipers) and the other one is the vacume pipe. Most of the time it is damaged. This pipe is softer and thinner than the brake pipe. It will have a inner pipe and outer sleeve (pipe) that is loose from the main pipe, just to prtect the inner pipe. It can have a leak under that sleeve. ENJOY from Willem Potchefstroom SA
You can take the line off and take to a parts store that sells metal brake pipes by the foot,there is different size pipes as well as flared end nuts.You will have to bend the pipe to fit then bleed the brake system.Iwould suggest to take it to a shop and have a pipe made up.
You "do not" need a strut spring compressor to change the struts on a 1998 ford escort.
Place the front of the car on jack stands, and remove the front tires.
Disconnect and remove the 2 bolts (at the bottom of the strut) that attach the strut to the knuckle (you may need air impact to break them free).
Remove the brake lines from the line retainer on the strut: If you open the brake lines you will need brake fluid, and need to bleed the brake system (to avoid opening the brake system, cut the line retainer from the old strut).
Inside the hood remove the circular cap that covers the top retaining nut on the strut. Remove the top retaining nut, then remove the strut.
Install new struts in reverse. To align the new strut to the knuckle, use a screwdriver to start the aligment, then insert the retaining bolts. If you cut the brake line retainers from the old struts, use plastic zip ties to attach the brake lines to the new struts.
