  The mystery extra opening in your brake line might be from a trailer-brake 
connection.  Most of the older trailer brake controllers that were mounted in 
the cab of pickups were run off of the brake fluid while using the truck 
brakes. When you pressed on the brakes of your truck to stop, the pressurized 
fluid would go into the controller, in turn making an electrical connection 
that was sent from the controller, back to the electric trailer brakes. Hope 
this is clear as mud.  Good Luck,
