C/K drum brake issue

So i got some new brake shoes and pulled off all the stuff to change out the wheel cylinders on my '82 c-10 and I have two issues.
1. The brake line nut to the back of the wheel cylinder is on pretty good. I put a 3/8" line wrench on it after some penetrating oil. All i did was damage the nut slightly. Any suggestions on getting it loose would be welcomed. I've found some new rear lines at LMC truck if I need to replace them.
2. There are two different sized pads on the shoes. The ones that were on the truck had the smaller on the rear side (the shoe attached to the parking brake cable) and the larger thicker one on the front side. My manual shows a pic that is the opposite of this. Which one is right? I'm guessing the Chilton's manual is correct and that someone previously had them on backwards.
(they are the 11"x2" shoes)

I just put the old stuff back together till I can get this stuff straight.
Thanks, Matt
