Can I replace all brake lines without removing engine?

I did a search but maybe didn't use the right search terms.

I want to replace all the brake lines (power front disc/rear drum) on my 68. The AIM makes it looks like it could be tricky going under the engine.

For all the experts: can I replace all brake lines while the engine, rear end, etc is still installed?

I was able to get them in with engine in, but it was up on a 4 post lift. The long one to the rear is the issue.

Replaced all mine, as mentioned above , the long one is a booger. Had I selected stainless, it may have been harder to route up into the cowl, fender apron area just below the m/c.
