Fuel line to rail disconnect
I'm about at my wits end.. I'm trying to get down to my valve covers to replace gaskets, but can NOT for the life of me disconnect the fuel lines so I can take out the rails. I first got the el cheapo plastic quick disconnect kit which promptly broke when I put pressure on it. Then I got the metal scissors looking thing that has 4 diff sizes on it. I can get the tool under the oval connector but that won't compress the springs enough to unlock the fuel line. Just now got back from the parts store with the circular coupling disconnect tool that goes over both sides of the line to remove it. Still no dice.
Any tricks anybody can give me? I've now spent almost $30 in tools to get these MF'ers disconnected and absolutely pissed at myself that disconnecting a couple fuel lines has been stopping me from tearing down the rest of the engine.
