Brake Line Disassembly

Any trick to getting the brake lines apart when you get to the acorn nut type fittings? I canít get the nut/fitting to spin on the brake line and end up twisting the brake line. I have tried PB Blaster and a few other penetrant type liquids but no luck. I know these are 50 year old lines and I plan on replacing them but would like to take the lines out whole so I can replicate them properly. Thank you.

Just cut the lines at the fitting with a hacksaw or pipe cutter. Cutting off a centimeter or two at the end won't make the lines any more difficult to replicate.
