f250 brake system

I have a 2001 f250 4x4 V10 - the brake line rusted till it began leaking. How do I bleed the brake system after replacing the rusted line?

This is how I did mine. Its the gravity method. Very slow, but easy and can be done safely by yourself.

Simple answer, a lot, and depends on which line.
