Brake pipe part number help for early LHD 90

Having a heck of a time trying to find valid part numbers for the LHD brake lines for my 1984 90. When I search on what I believe to be the proper part number I am only finding 1 or 2 places in the UK that have the parts listed and each part would have to come from a different placeif they really have them in stock

Not sure if maybe the part number have been changed to a new part number? I believe the correct parts number are.

rear brake pipe NTC1636
front master to tee LHD NRC9435
2nd front master line LHD NRC9431
right side brake pipe LHD NRC9437

Or do you think I would be better off just ditching the old style setup since I was considering replacing the mater and all of the lines anyway?

Other than the obvious lack of demand for LHD parts, the lack of parts in stock is likely because it's very common here in the UK to either make your own brake pipes or have them made by a garage. Copper-nickel brake pipe is cheap, durable and easy to form. I made new lines from the master to the back of the truck, to both rear brakes, and the small pipes that go from the flex line to the front calipers. Total investment was the equivalent of about US$75 including a flaring tool.

x2 on making your own.
All you need is a cutter, tubing, (ends if you can't reuse yours) and a ISO bubble flare kit and bender.

I like the bender pictured as it allows making really tight bends where needed that most benders can't do.
Any fittings, and tubing too, can be bought from Fed-hill, if you can't find it locally.

Safari posted recently in the "Vendors Loft" thread that they have a stainless kit available for LHD 110's. I don't know if they have the same for 90's, but you may want to check with him.
Initiative comes to thems that wait.

3/16 line, cutter and a bubble flare kit and you're done...less than $25. Buy a bulk roll of the line since once you figure out how easy it is you will most likely redo more than just the problem lines.

As cheap as make-your-own-lines are (i've got the kit in my garage), I do like the look of factory bent steel pipes. they just look... well, "factory" and neat.

I can never seem to get the copper stuff straightened into a perfect straighness... there's always kinks and bends that look too homemade for my taste.

I would upgrade to NAS style everything and use stainless personally.
