My 2 cents , on a car and it’s parts over 50 years old . Start thinking about replacing all of the lines , along with the clutch line and oh the fuel line . And oh the oil gauge line also , cause when it goes your going to have oil all over your drivers floor.
You can get a complete set of stainless steel lines, for all the above , pre bent , and replace them as needed .
I did this to my 67 BJ-8 along with switching over to silicone brake fluid . Never have to worry about any issues with this kind of thing again .
Good Luck , Don

Steel brake line is cheap, so buy extra to practice with--it will probably take a couple tries to get it right--and switch to stainless or cunifer if you prefer after you get the hang of it. Oh, and don't forget to put the fittings on before you flare the ends; it's painful to get a couple flares just right then realize there are no fittings (someone told me that once). I think getting good flares is even trickier than bending.
