Default Yet another brake line blowout

On the way to picking up my trailor my main line from front to rear blewout. sat to long i guess. It looks as if i won't be able to seporate the high-pressure hose from the hard line or from the splitter ? block on top of the left rear axle. Looks as if the lines to the wheel cylinders will also be breaking as they also are very rusty. So guess that means new wheel cylinders also? I cannot see how the brass splitter block on top of the axle is attached. Any clue would be appreciated. I have already replaced the 3 lines going to the ABS control.up front Lotsa bending and flaring. I have not come across a rear metering block-? or what-cha-ma-call it.Its so rusted it looks as if it welded
Should I just try my best to remove the lines from the wheel cylinders and go all new from there or what. I don't want to have to replace the cylinders also, lotsa $$ for an M-T wallet, Guess this is what happens when good trucks sit. I've got way to much new in the truck except stick a little more into it.
Any HELP on which way to proceed would be GREATLY appreciated
Thanks Jim
