Normally brake lines for cars and trucks are made from stock straight lines and bent by the person installing them, it would be extremely rare to be able to buy bent brake lines even from a car dealer but that's not to say it can not be done.

Have you tried calling Oshkosh truck about it with your VIN?

I misunderstood when I read master cylinder it seemed like a large chassis to have hydraulic brakes, but the same holds true for most of the air brake hoses on trucks. Most truck service centers can make you hoses as long as you give them the old one for a sample. A lot of car part stores can make them as well but you have to be careful that they use DOT air brake hose not hydraulic hose which is more expensive and no where near as pliable which is not DOT acceptable for air brake use. Air brake hoses replacement is really much more easier that steel brake lines.

The front brake flex hoses are normally carried ready made at truck service centers.

Do you have any "plastic" brake lines along the frame?

With all the pipe line type trucks I've seen in Texas I would not think you'd have a problem finding someone to take care of your needs or try truck dealers selling tractors or mid size straight rigs.

Mine does not have plastic or nylon they are rubber and steel.The front ones are steel with a double flair that have 90 on one end and 31 in.overall.
I was the owner and mechanic of a truck service shop since 1973,my son has the shop now.We have a hydraulic crimping machine.But do not have the right fittings.Our local parts stores have stopped making them for liability reasons. I found the master cylinder with numbers i read on this forum.
After all the years that I have spent looking for parts I am stumped on this one.I do know they are application specific.Meaning different than other applications.
Any help will be appreciated.

Freightliner Custom Chassis took over Oshkosh and they now provide tech support for them. Give them a call - maybe they can help.

You need to contact a major brake place... The hoses you are looking for.. Odds are they are not used on more than 100 different makes and models.

Thanks for the feedback,I went to the shop this am and searched thru all of our fittings.I found a box of fittings that i had bought at a auction several years ago ,was able to make a line,but had to use 3 extra reducers on one end to make it fit.I will carry it as a spare.
I had read too that Freightliner had taken over Oshkosh.I called the dealer in Lubbock,Tx.They said that they knew nothing about this.I will continue searching.Still waiting on the master cylinder.

Is there a reason you can't use the fittings off of the old lines by cutting them off?

Hydraulic crimped fittings are one time use .They could be ground off then brazed or wire welded to a new sleve,then crimped.I would do this if i was down beside the road.I wanted new ones because the orignals are 18 years old.
I am the king of shade tree mechanics,but am getting a lot of flack from my co-pilot.

Don't bother with a Freightliner dealer - call the factory customer support line. They know about Oshkosh. John Deere too.

From a user named rsflight on Classic Winnebago site: (Classic Winnebagos & Vintage RVs!)

Quote:
During the time frame of late 80's, most RVs were built on a Johne Deere or a Chevy chassis. John Deere sold to Oskkosh who then sold to Freightliner. Most engine parts are Ford. Special parts come from Freightliner, such as brake hoses. There are also alot of aftermarket parts on the chassis, like some fuel pumps, guages, windshield spray nozzles etc. There are parts available thru StepVan parts stores too
In his post he indicated he has more information if needed.

Additionally, there is a 86-89 John Deere/Oshkosh manual available in the site store.
