Default fuel line removal without disconnect tool?

Im trying to install new fuel injectors but i have a limited amount of space to work with. inorder to get the room amount needed i would have to take off the fuel rail, and honestly its kinda tough to remove the fuel lines without the disconnect tool. any advice? tips or secrets i should know about? im thinking of just hammering it with a flat head to loosen the seal. havent driven my baby for a month so imagine the stress level.

best bet would be get the tool, its a pain to get off even with it, you have to push the tool into the connection while pulling apart the line, kinda hard unless you have 3 hands. they are not that much at any parts store.

+1, the disconnect tools are really cheap.

Getting it off without the tool would be tough.

The tool is like $10 or less...spend the money to buy the tool instead of having to spend it on replacement fuel lines/rails when you destroy them with a hamner...

shouldnt need to unhook the lines to remove the injectors.

Be sure to get the metal one like this:

http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...te=1&p=2822560

Almost any auto parts will have it. Do NOT buy the plastic circle things. They're a buncha garbage. Like somebody posted, it's hard enough to do with the metal tool. I probably burned about 500 calories and cussed enough for a week just to get that stupid thing to release. Why they don't just use something that screws in beats the heck outta me.

If you have a hard time seperating the lines, what I find works best is to spray brake clean into the connector to clean out all the garbage that builds up in them. Also try WD-40, it may help also. Same tip goes with the fuel filter with the steel lines on the SN95.
