Dave,
        Brake line is too small ID if you want to replace the steel ones. Also all fittings are metric, not SAE, JIC, BSP or AN.

For the rubber ones, take the ends in to a hydraulics shop and they'll clamp some decent hose onto your ends.

Or go here :

And wheel and deal, especially for the steel ones..

OIL PUMP LINE??

Yes,
as Sean has said, the Internal diameter of the hoses is Very Important..
It should be identical to the original hoses...
Outside diameter doesn't matter...

the pressure hose is a different size to the return line...
the pressure hose 1080mm long... thin hose
the return line is 720mm long... thicker hose

My hoses are thicker on the outside as I used hydraulic hose and fittings to match the original hose internal diameters..
