Flair nut wrenches work much better on such frozen brake lines and may keep you from stripping the nut. Worth trying.
Often called crow foot wrenches too.

You will have to research this in the archives, as I could be wrong, but I believe you can use a 3/4 cylinder instead of a 13/16. As I recall from years ago I had a 13/16 and a 3/4 mix on my car , and changed out the 13/16.

A crows foot is a different tool
