 Description of the problemMy wife and daughter was with me and i was towing my brother in laws small tractor on my dad's tandem axle trailer. We had already drove about 20 miles and coming up to their house turn off. I turned into there driveway and started to turn so we could then back up the trailer to his barn to unload his tractor. The truck stopped perfectly but the brakes felt weird at that point so when completely stopped i put into park then we got out of the truck and unloaded the tractor and when we was unloading the tractor i went up to the cab of the truck and opened the door because i was going to step on the brake pedal so the front brakes would help hold my truck in place when the weight of the tractor hit the back of the trailer which in turn would make the rear of my truck really light. When i hit the pedal it went all the way to the floor absolutely no pedal at all. Then i noticed the smell of brake fluid then looked under the truck and sure enough brake fluid everywhere right underneath the driver side door. I crawled under the edge of the truck just a bit and notice all the brake lines right there in one area but the one had busted/split. So i kind of notice all the other ones all in that area were really rusted up some as well. It almost in that area only looked as if the truck had 200,000 miles on it but just on the brake lines nothing else. Needless to say i only have two vehicles and i worked in two days so i went to my local autoparts store and bought what i thought would be enough to fix the truck. Got home and started in on it. And realized i didn't have one fitting i needed so luckily for me my dad was already out and he picked up what he thought was the part. Needless to say when he got to my place the parts they gave him wasn't the correct parts.
