'76 Argosy - Back Brake Line - can't find?!

It seems the back brake line on my 76' Argosy uses a bigger diameter input line/bolt than what all the auto parts stores carry. Any suggestions? Can't seem to find the correct part...

Is this a trailer? To my knowledge Argosy didn't have hydraulic brakes. I'm confused about the term "input line".
Can you post some pics.

It's a HM.

It looks like this.


The problem is that the "(2) 3/8"-24 & Female" connectors are to small. My pipe nuts are bigger, 7/16 I believe. This cable and the one they sell at Autozone, O'Riley's, etc don't fit.

Most sites say "Except Motor Home Chassis"...

Look at some of the collector/antique car sites like J.C.Whitney. They have a lot of wierd stuff like what you are looking for.
