HPOP fittings

Okay, I've read about a gazillion posts about changing the HPOP o-rings but I am still not sure about the quick disconnect type fittings. Some say there is a tool but you maybe don't need it, some say you do. Can anyone tell me which it is and how you would use it if you had one?
I have cleaned everything up and still haven't actually found a leak but it is a very minor one so I am going to keep looking. I had puddles in the valley from the front on back but it only drops a couple small drops at the rear of the engine when parked. I have not seen any drops since cleaning it up yesterday.
I would really like to be ready when I find the leak. How do the fittings actually disconnect, is it like an air hose connector or what? Is the dealer the only place to get the o-rings?
Thanks for any help and pics if possible.
Darrell

I used two screwdrivers to get mine loose. I worked the black ring up and pulled on the hose at the same time. Others have used a interior door panel tool and modded it to work. Don't go buy the tool from Ford, it is not worth the $85.

The O rings are available from a hydraulic shop. They are the O ring for an ORB(O ring Boss) fitting. I believe they are #5 ORB fittings in the heads and pump(s).

O rings are available here: Powerstrokeshop.com

The entire quick connect fittings are availible from Ford and they include both inner and outer "O" rings for about $10.00 each. The "O" ring kit for two fittings and does not include the inner "O" rings is about $30.00. It's a "NO BRAINER" H-POP

I took a tightening tool for a diegrinder and beveled the end with a file and it works like the factory tool. I got the idea from a Ford diesel mechinic. Good luck. H-POP

Okay if I understand you H POP I can buy new oil lines with o-rings for about $10 each but they do not include the o-rings between the fittings and the HPOP itself? Do the oil line fittings have o-rings in them as well? If so maybe that is where the leak is. Do the lines themselves ever leak instead of the fittings?

The quick connect fittings are about $10.00 from Ford not the oil lines. The oil lines Don't fail very often. Hope this helps, H-POP
