A closer looks shows thatthe section of leaking brakeline 
--unfortunately-- is the _next_ one over (191 611 994F) which 
connects up to the brake pressure regulator. The regulator looks to 
be a very tight place to work on and what's even worse is the 
extremely corroded condition of the regulator and of the brakeline 
fitting going to it. I wonder if replacing the regulator will be 
necessary--is this a common problem area?
