I have a very simple philosophy. go with the cheapist and easiest plan first.

the fuel line tool that you will need is a plastic or metal split ring collar that goes around the fuel line. What it does is to "gently" expand a coil spring to move it out of the way of the locking collar. The "cheap" tools typically do not have the strengh or bevel edge for them to work properly, and if you break the connection it will be $$$$. You may also need to buy the locking clip that is th safety for the fitting. It may break when you try to remove it. If you try the 3 buck Chuck version, be carreful and do not force it.

Also, if you do not have the CD service manual, It has the correct procedures and most importantly, the safety warnings. I suggest that you buy one. They are not expensive and will save you a lot of time and frustration.
