Scraper sent us a link to this inexpensive and effective alternative to the old-school method of disconnecting Ford fuel lines with pliers — or using a $60 specialty tool.  He writes: “If you need to disconnect the fuel lines on a Ford, this is the tool to use.  I recently needed to replace my fuel tank, and this tool made it a snap to release the couplers on the fuel lines.  It also makes changing the fuel filter a breeze.”

The best part: it’s available for under $10 from Amazon (and just a little more elsewhere).  If you’re in a hurry, we’ve found that O’Reilly’s Auto Parts carries most K-D tools — or can get them from their warehouses relatively quickly.

    I have used the plastic version with good success, also from KD: http://www.kd-tools.com/3530.htm
    They may not be as durable as the metal ones, but you get 6 different sizes for the about the same price (I think it was about $7 for the set at O’Reilly Auto).

    I recommend the plastic version of the disconnect tool. Although these may not be as cheap as the models mentioned, they won’t damage or deform the retaining barbs inside the fuel lline as easily. Lisle makes a nice set that is sold by various dealers.
