Napa sells the whole MC, you can't just buy the line, IIRC.

I was quoted $68 and some change for the MC. Give your local NAPA store a call. If you decide to buy the MC from NAPA, there is a special procedure to bleed the air out.

I would get a whole new MC. Have any clue why it broke in that spot?

New MC would not do anything. The line is broke, not the MC.
I just bought the truck this way. So no clue. I think cat or other animal up under there did it. Trucks been setting for couple years.
Its a clean break

Calling your local NAPA store would net better results.
