You can use the other side as a guide for the side you are doing . That's the best way.

If not, I suggest you to go your local library or parts store and pick up a repair manual such as a Chilton or a Haynes. The old ones are pretty detailed and will give you a lot of help.

I always hated those Chryslers with 4 wheel drum brakes. It's like stopping a bus! My sister had a 1974 Gold Duster (with the optional snake skin vinyl top). It was one hardy little car and never failed her once in the couple years she had it. Factory ice box air too

You might call up Fine Lines, Inline Tube or Classic Tube. They make prebent brake lines for most applications. If not, they can make you an exact copy from your old one...even if it's broken.
