aND HOW CAN WE HELP? It is best tohave a shop replace your brake lines due to the need to bleedbleed he air from the brake system. You really should have everything inspected, all brake lines..It's worth the cost.
Pump is in fuel tank. It is a miserable job, do not attempt unless you are experienced at frustration. The fuel lines will likely be seized as well as the tank straps. Also the sending unit will be rusted together and will have to be replaced, the tank likely will be rusted under straps and will be no good to reinstall.
No, A/C replacement is complicated, there are legal issues with the release of the R132. There are oiling issued to be addressed, and a receiver / dryer that needs to be changed. Take to a qualified shop for this job.
it is VERY easy to get injured working with A/C systems.

the metal line is part of the fuel pump. if the line is that fragile it should just be replaced. what if it broke and left you stranded somewhere. the fuel tank might look rusty but it's probably just surface rust.
You should be able to re-route a new section of line w/out any trouble. If the line is leaking due to rust, you might want to replace all the lines at once, since the rest of the system is probably rusting away also. If you plan on keeping the truck for a while, all the more reason to replace it all. I must add, I hate those rusting brake lines! Did mine over 2 times on y 90 F-250, salt and snow plowing do a number on them.
WOW that's high. They are correct to want to replace all the lines, 'cause they could be liable if another one goes right after they fix it, and another probably will. I plow snow, and my trucks brake lines have been changed twice, due to road salt. I would get at least 2 more estimates. It is a nasty job, as everything you try to take off is rusted up bad, but I'm sure u can do better , possibly a private garage. There are stainless steel lines available on the internet, but not sure if your model is available. They cost a lot more than regular steel, but if u don't plan on keeping the car another 8 yrs. go for cheaper steel. good luck countrycurt0
