need tool to remove fuel lines

I'm trying to remove my fuel tank on my 2001 psd to replace the bag/filter inside that i believe is causing trash build up in my filter housing. I've got the tank dropped just can't get the fuel lines disconnected. I went to autozone and bought a ford fuel line removal tool but it doesn't seem to work, almost like its to thick. Does anybody know of a different tool or maybe a part no. so i get the right one? Can i get one from ford? Any tips or help would be appreciated, i know its simple with the right tool.

Harbor Freight...was like $9 for a set of 4 different color ones. Worked on the fuel and the AC lines. They are round with a split on one side and a very thin lip. The lip goes into the o-ring area and it opened very easy. Hope this helps.

Recently had a very hard time pulling one of those fittings apart when my fuel supply/return tube assemble started leaking. Turns out it just had a lot of trash built up inside the fitting. Had to poke at mine for a while before it came apart!

Fords are a paint using the normal parts store Metal Scissor style ones

Oddly enuff the tool you get from GM looks like a CHEAP plastic baby road cone and it works awesome.
force will work sometimes, but honestly pushed in right it should just come right off.

The 7 dollar cheap tool worked fine on mine, just make sure you're forcing the tool into the fitting and the fitting on to the tool and simultaniously pulling the whole gaggle away from the line.

Thanks for the info, i bought the metal scissor type first and it was to big, it fit in the fitting but wouldn't disconnect it no matter how hard i pulled. Called a friend who had the small plastic ones, clipped them on and the lines practically fell off. It was almost to easy, so i'll be taking mine back and buying some like he has! Thanks again.
