    Length, fittings and routing all vary. The braided line is cheap. Buy plenty and cut to fit. Summit racing carry’s most of what you need. Lots of threads on here about -4 brake line installation

    Since you have already ordered -4 use it.
    For the future remember that there is no volume flowing through the brake lines. There is only a transfer of pressure with a very small amount of fluid moving. SO a -3 will be very satisfactory. Cessna uses -3 on their brake lines.

    I agree with you all. Maybe I won’t be happy with the size of hose I get ,maybe it will look bulky I’d probably prefer the -3 I sure hope the -4 connects to the master cylinder fitting that exists from the factory . Any one have a idea what size the inner hose is?

    I plane on just making one long hose to avoid any connections
