Default Hard brake line size

I'm trying to verify this is the correct brake line for the front right side of my 1980 242.
https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...340/22190216-P

Are these the right ends M10 x1.0 and 40" length or should it be longer?

Thanks in advance

Yes they are 10 x 1.0. They also have an ISO bubble flare, that is square under the head/fitting. American cars used a double flare, the Brittish used a bubble flare with a tapered base and a special fitting. As far as the length, take out your old one, with a tape measure it as best as you can. Err on the side of to long.

The copper nickel like that are easier to bend and last longer than steel. It's what is original. I presume you mean the line that runs from the warning light valve to the inner fender. That is part number 3530029. No longer available. I think I remember using 40" as the ~ length when I bought one.
