problem is resolved, used a coat hanger, some ducttape, disconnected rear line from underneath the truck, pushed thru, grabbed with hook and sued duct tape to hold in place while i reconnected rear brake line... took duct tape off, pin was missing from brake handle, replaced with shortened wood screw.... looks and feels brand new... total cost - 0
