How the %*(#

How the hell do you disconnect the fuel line from the gas tank.

Im replacing the front 19gal gas tank and the old one is dropped but i need to disconect the fuel lines from the sending unit so i can install a new retaining ring to keep the fuel sender retained to the gas tank.

I rented this fancy $250 tool with a billion parts and no instructions




I used the computer to put color on each different piece of where its suppose to disconnect

1994.5, 2.5 lift, 35s on 17x10 MHTs, Intercooled, Stage 3 injectors, Nitrous, 6637, Water/Meth, 3" DP, 4" Magnaflow, IDM, TS Chip, 4.10s, 33s, 4 Pod pillar. 6000k HIDs.

Converted From ZF5 To E4OD w/ PCS TCM-2000 Tuneable Trans Computer, 6.0L Trans cooler and Triple Disc TC.

Up next Install electric fuel, ladder bars

The same tool will work for his truck too. He has the master mechanic a/c fuel line disconnect kit. Which should have the proper pieces to disconnect the lines. You just need to find the right size piece and go for it.
