Rear brakes tubing

Well after getting stuck in florida due the storm and having to drive because we couldn't get a flight I decided to go for a ride in the stang just to get away from the family . Pulled car out of garage put top down went to leave and brake pedal goes to floor and I start to see smoke . I turn cAr off can't find anything start up again step on brAke max hear hiss hiss look under and find a puddle of brake fluid well I blew reAr pass side steel line. Question I cAnt find a junction box under car and the brake line cAnt got from front All the way to the rear cAn it and there is nothing in the mAnuL or online . I don't mind changing the line but I can't see it being 1 piece of 20 ft of bend

There should be a junction on the axl housing, the brake line will go from there to the master, there will be two little lines from the junction the the wheel cyl.

You might want to flush the fluid in the front anyway and maybe look into replacing all the lines. Lack of regular fluid flushes is probably why you had a failure in the rear line. Brake fluid is hydroscopic and makes the lines rust from the inside out when it is not changed regularly.

Chances are that if you replace that line the next weekest line will blow out soon, I agree that they all should be replaced with a flush when you can.
