Fuel bowl removal questions

My 2001 ford f250 has been leaking fuel from the fuel bowl ever since I bought it. I purchased o-rings to re-seal the entire fuel bowl. When I first started this project I got to taking the bolts out from the front of the HPOP reservoir and my ratchet was too big to remove the bolts so I had to go get a new ratchet. I bolted everything up so no dust or dirt got in the system and ended up breaking the FPR threading so I ordered a billet one and got it in today. On every video online of people removing the bolts for the fuel bowl the EBPS is not in the way, but I can't get to the bolt. Has anybody else had this problem and if so how to do go about getting the bolt out?
Thanks.

I just did the bowl on my truck that bolt was a pita. I used a 1/2 ratchet wrench to get the bolt loose. After removing all the other connections to the bowl I just let the bowl move away from the hpop reservoir ale left the bolt though.

That's exactly what you do. Leave the bolt in place and remove the bowl

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Thanks y'all, I'll try that tomorrow. How did y'all loosen the bolt though? I can't even get my socket on it.

And if you don't have one of them just a regular old wrench will do it.

I got the fuel bowl out but now my problem is the FPR threads are in the nut on the fuel line and I can't get the fuel line out of the truck. I spent 2 hours trying to get it out and I can't do it. Does anybody know a way to get the threads out of the nut?
