Lisle tool 39960. Sometimes they are a pain to get off even with the tool Sometimes you can just remove your fittings and reinstall them in the new radiator. I have one in my toolbox

good luck with that. spray the hell out of them with brake clean and blow them out with compressed air. then maybe a little bit of penetration oil and a spinkle of magic should do the trick. hopefully there isn't a half a granule of sand in there keeping it from releasing

god i would LOVE to meet the engineer that designed these DAMN quick connect fittings now used on damn near every Fucking trans cooler line

also, assenmacher makes an aluminum anodized release tool for these. haven't had a chance to try it but it looks like it would work okay

After more time than I care to admit came up with a freaking good solution to Fords quick connect, nah don't cut the sucker. get hold of a 1/2 inch oxygen line ferruel, dremel tool off the back side and split the brass in half open it up slip it around the cooler line then gently work it into fitting with a small scredriver, you will hear/feel a little click, pull the line back and your home free. The SOB that designed this ought to have his nuts squeezed in a vise
