Default Brake line question

Does anyone have a brake line routing diagram for a 1994 full sized Blazer?
I have the factory manual but it does not show anything, and searching the web has taken me nowhere.
I need to replace the line that goes from the front to the rear flex line connection. Thanks for any help. Dave.

As long as you go from point A (master cylinder or proportioning valve) to point B (flex line to the rear axle), keeping away from moving parts, sharp objects, and/or heat sources, you should be good. You don't have to follow the exact path of the original. Just get some long and medium lengths of brake line from Napa and bend it yourself. I'm not too sure what the cost of brake line is right now, but I re-plumbed my dad's '94 K2500 farm truck for $15 a few years ago.

yeah heck i usually dont even remove the old brake lines unless they are in the way. i work part time in a shop and they always stick all the brake jobs with me. also wouldnt hurt to get a flaring tool so you dont have to bend the line all over the place trying to get rid of the extra 10 inchs
