We use Pirtek for hydraulic hoses on all of our machinery. Very good, but very very expensive.

I've come across an Italian manufacturer called LPR. It's possible to search on their website for brake pipes of a certain length with a +/- tolerance of 25%. The search tool is not perfect but a search of 200mm with a tolerance of 25% without specifying the m or f on the ends brings up a whole lot of results, even better the parts detail shows which vehicle they're for.

Aeroquip catalogue has a wealth of fittings to browse - https://www.eaton.com/ecm/groups/public/...479318.pdf
Or Demon Tweeks https://www.demon-tweeks.com/eu/goodridg...se-243365/
Out of interest, why not fit the standard part?

You may find none of this is necessary, the pipe may be fine under the slight corrosion.

Unless it's badly pitted I would clean it up, paint it with anti rust paint & cover it in grease / waxoil like everyone else does.

You're right, I'm probably over thinking this, it's only slightly corroded & from what I read in the MoT testers guidelines, it'll probably pass. I've already put some thin black anti-rust paint on and will see what the MoT man says. I do know that he's really not keen on stone chip on the brake pipes which I sprayed on another car by accident one year. If he fails it I'll fix it, or if he comments on it, I may even just get it out of the way now.

As regards the original genuine part, the only place I could find that even listed it, had it for £80 and it wasn't certain they had it in stock. The repair will mean 2 inches of rigid pipe which I already have plus a couple of nuts & a flexi hose. I'll also need a new flaring tool for £35 ish as the 2 that I have are for SAE or Girling flares. All in that'll be less than 1 hour labour at the garage.

Each MOT tester has their "Thing" some go for brake pipes like a pish head to a curry  Big Grin

With the correct flaring tool & hoses it should be straight forward enough to make up a replacement pipe.
