Question about 1989 Ford F 150
This is a pain job. Wear safety goggles, as you will probably have rust falling down on you as you work. The brake line fittings will be difficult to separate. Soak the fittings with some penetrating oil for several days to make them easier to take apart. Get a pair of vise grips on the fitting that you want to loosen, and another pair where it attaches to the next line. Make sure the line you don't want to change doesn't turn, as it is common for the lines to be fused together with rust, and many times the 'good' line breaks off at the connection, requiring you to replace more lines. Parts stores have different sizes and length brake lines, and they are quite cheap. Bring the old line in for them to match up the fitting size on both ends and the length. You will have to bend them to match the original, just do it slowly so you don't 'kink' them (they are junk if that happens, and you will have to start over). You will then have to bleed the brakes to remove air in the lines. Good luck.
