Oh sorry, I went back and reread it. I thought you were talking them off of the HPOP! My bad, I've never taken those off at the motor, but if it is the same type quick disconnects, then it works just like an air hose. I used needlenosed pliers. I'm sure you know this already...

At least I can help bump this up for you...

you can use a die grinder wrench. The little black flat wrench 3/4 one end 9/16 on the other. the 9/16 end works great.

This or a snap ring tool works. Even a flat head screw driver works in a pinch.

r12 and r134 do not mix. Did you already purge the system and you are just trying to vac the system down before recharge? If so, you can vac the system down. If you are trying to use a r12 recovery machine. Don't.
