Fuel line disconnects

I have a 2005 Workhorse chassis and am trying to get the fuel lines off the top of the fuel tank (the tank has been dropped down). I have 2 tools for the 3/8" quick disconnects but can't figure out the procedure to use them. This is the GM 8.1 engine and fuel module assembly in the tank.

If it is the type of connector I am thinking about, this should work.

Clamp one end of the quick disconnect tool around one of the lines leading into the tank.

Slide the edges of the tool into the nipple where the fuel line meets the tank.

Pull firmly on the quick disconnect tool to pull the line off the tank.

It is a special tool made just for that application. I havn't found a place to buy one but I havn't looked that hard. When I did mine the normal quick disconect tools took the lines off the hard fuel line but I had to take the pump out and take it to a GM truck dealer. A mechanic there had the tool and removed it for me. The tool has a knotch in it to clear the piece of metal next to the line on the fuel pump. Good luck.PS the OTC 6511 looks like the right type of tool and the OTC 6509 is the same tool but for 5/16" and 3/8" lines.
