Help Transmission line connection

How do I remove these transmission lines from the bottom of my rad? Is there a special tool I need? I can remove the white clips but can't pull out the lines.

do a search on ebay or amazon for Assenmacher AST8023. It's an anodized aluminum 1/2" disconnect tool for the torqshift trans.

You can't beat it, fords special disconnect is plastic and I've ruined countless ones

I always spray around the fitting very well with brake clean to clear any dirt out, then blow it with compressed air and soak it in penetration oil. You'll have to work at it, but it'll come loose

Thanks,
I will head off to Princess Auto in the morning. I've seen those on their shelves. I think they have a kit that has three or four different sizes that are listed as fuel and AC disconnect tools if I remember correctly.

watch out, there are normal disconnect tools for fuel lines and such that won't work in this application. Notice in that pic how thin the part that slides into the quick connect is. Those tools are only made in 2 different sizes and they're special for Ford's tranny lines.

If I can't get one in the morning it's gonna end up with two new compression fittings because I just started tearing it down to instal a new bulletproof oil cooler, ARP studs and OEM gaskets. I don't want to wait for a specific tool.
