Default Fuel line tool?

I have a leak at the o-rings in the fuel line before it goes to the fuel rail/fuel pressure regulator. I picked up an OEM 5/16 - 3/8 fuel line disconnect tool. The tool is too small. Is there a correct disconnect tool out there? I was thinking of trying the Snap On guy next week....but he's kinda pricey.

So...yeah....there are signs of fuel leaks coming from those line leaking onto the valve cover. I blew through a half tank of gas just to go 60 miles. I assume it is those o-rings....but if not, they need changing anyhow due to age. Does anyone know if the lines themselves are available new?

Default Re: Fuel line tool?

Nevermind! My dumb*ss forgot that a couple years back, I bought a more extensive fuel line tool kit for my Bronco. So I got the o-rings changed and re-routed the fuel lines so that they are a few inches further away from the valve cover/manifold area. Hopefully no more vapor-lock and fuel seapage!
