I bought the fuel line kit. It came with two plastic tools, one orange, one blue. I literally have no idea how to use them or get off the fuel line. It looks like they are different sized tools. Please help.

ok, assuming you have the two correct size tools.....

you just pry the tool apart and get it around the fuel line, which isnt really easy as the connectors are right a a 90* fitting.

I tried several times to get mine apart, no luck. It was a day and a half later when i figured it out and had to get a little mad.

I ended up using a large pliers to push the connection together, then pull apart.....it took some force to do it, way more than i was expecting.

All the tool does is push a spring apart or out to allow the nipple to slide back and apart, i reallly hate these kinds of connections.

with tools installed, then just push and pull apart with some great force, i was using a large adjustable plier

Thanks, after we saw your photo, we realized they sold us the wrong tool. We got something that was on a really long handle.
