Fuel bowl stand pipe removal

I'm trying to rebuild my fuel bowl and I can't get the stand pipe to unscrew. The only thing I can get on it is a 7/8 inch crows foot but the stand pipe is plastic and it just wants to round off the edges - darn thing doesn't want to budge.

So does anyone have any tips outside of buying a special tool of some sort? Also, do I really need to remove the stand pipe? I was able to unplug and remove the heater element, not sure I'll be able to get it back in though.

Call me an idiot, it says right on the instructions Left Hand Thread

Amazing what happens when you turn it in the right direction, came right off just like they said it would.

Thanks

I found out the hard way a while back, seventy bucks for the plastic tube at the stealer ship.
