Typically a 10mm line wrench will help you remove the line. This video show the job being done on a similar car.

Be sure to use a flare nut wrench if you want to save the line. Open end wrenches can be expected to round off those soft brass nuts. If you're replacing the line, cut it off at the nut and use a six point deep socket. If you're replacing the wheel cylinder and the nut is rusted to the line, it's going to twist the line off. Just loosen it instead, then unbolt the wheel cylinder and spin it off the nut.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers

Working on this truck I found someone who has ridged the brake lines from the master. I need to know where the two lines from the master go to. Is there a diagram that shows complete on how all lines go?

We have no pictures of any brake lines. There are two different systems on this truck one with anti lock all around and one with anti lock on rear only. Best thing h ere is to go to a junkyard and see if you can find one with same layout and take those lines if you want it correct or go to a dealer and see if you can still get them. 97 and 98 may be the same

If it is a metal brake line that has rusted out, then you have to make a whole new line to it's next joint without any compression unions used and bleed out the system.
