Fuel filter line special disconnect tool size?

What is the actual size of the tool needed?

My local parts stores have plenty of sizes, just dont want to buy a bunch and have to return them. I did search but couldnt find the particular size needed just for the fuel filter..

Just buy the set of 6 for around $20. Then you'll have this one that you need now and any other one that you may need later. I bought a set not long ago to use on the AC lines when replacing a compressor and drier. Needed two different sizes on that job. Good luck!

LISLE 37000 - AC/FUEL LINE DISCONNECT TOOLS 6 SIZES 5/16-7/8

Here is the kit that I bought for a couple dollars more at sears and it worked great any sizes that you could need.

Good stuff. I have both sets as well as the aluminum "scissors" style, and the angled ones are by far easier and much more comfortable to use.

HHHmmm I guess since I am getting close to changing my filter again I might as well go and get the angled ones and try those out. That will make the old lady happy!!!!!!!!!Going out and buying more tools.

Price paying a mechanic to change the filter! The tools are cheaper, and ya can keep the tool.

By the way, there are two 10mm nuts on the outside of the frame rail that hold the annoying bracket the filter lives in. I pull them so I can wiggle the filter, then take the bracket off the filter when it's out of the truck. Squirt lots of penetrant into the connectors and they will release easier.

easy qweezy

I have a lift so it makes working on the truck much easier, but did it today and when I poured the gas out of the old filter it was brown sludge coming out of the filter inlet...Original filter at 130k!!!
