I need the front left brake line exiting the master cylinder. As well, I need the brass fitting that connects to the master cylinder and that brake lines attach to. Anyone help me out with those?

I'm not sure if the distribution block is a Packard-only thing, or if those can be found at NAPA. It would need to have 3 outlets (2 front, 1 back) and a spot for a brake light switch.

On the brake line, just pick up a pre-made length from NAPA. Use a rope and measure out what length you think you need (go longer) and pick up the corresponding length at NAPA. The ends are already flared and the fittings already installed. They are polymer coated to prevent rust, and they can easily be bent into shape with your thumbs. I think it's like $7 for a tube.
