Look at either a Haynes book or Chilton book, try the library thye usually have the books. Most have the pictures that are basically the same for all rear drum type brakes.

Which brake line are you talking about?. The metal steel ones,or the rubber ones. Doesn't matter. If you are buying the rubber ones, then just ask for them by year and model of truck.
If you are working with the steel ones, they are either going to be 5/16 or 1/4 depending which line it is. the 5/16 ones are usually attached to the master cylinder or the ABS unit. The fittings sometimes if you don't find the right one have to be re used, in which case you will need to flare the tubing. (Double Flare) Or you can go to the dealer, pay an arm and a leg, but you don't have to flare the tubing, which takes the fun out of the job.

SOURCE: rear disc brake line
You can remove the steel brake lines using a standard open end wrench although a flare wrech is recommended. You can purchase different length brake line at any parts store to replace the damaged line. In many circumstances you can also use a compression fitting to repair the damaged line.
