I don't know what they are called, but you can pick up the tool cheap at any auto parts store. It releases the fingers in side and pops off. I bought mine a set that does several different size connectors.

I actually just removed them by hand. All the sand from the mud has made this project a pita. Now I'm having a problem removing the white ring that holds the fuel pump to the tank. Not sure if It turns off or not...

You need a manual. It rotates to the unlock position. I'm not sure of what direction, but the general rule is Righty Tighty/Lefty Loosey.

it unscrews, lefty loosy, righty tighty.
Use a large flat blade screw driver and a hammer, tap the ridges to get it to turn.

Didn't work too well >.>

It is just not wanting to come off. Going to look around hardware/parts store to see what I can find to get it off. I don't want to ruin it

Just a little update snagged me some 480 Channels and took the sucker right off. The threads are perfect on both but it just seems to cross thread or pop off going back on. Starting to think that it might have been worth to money to have someone else do it. =P

Figured out what the issue was screwing the locknut onto the tank. Apply a little heat and wam bam it's on there. Guess the tank had shrunk being cold and needed to be heated up out in the sun for 10 or so mins.

Thought about using a hair dryer but I'm not even sure I own one anymore.

Got the tank up and all hooked up now. Puddles runs like a true champ once again. New Spark Plugs/wires, Cleaned the Throttle Body, and new Fuel Pump. It doesn't want to stall anymore shifting from Reverse to Drive and I even have low fuel light on the dash!

Here is what my Throttle body looked like on the outside. I should have took a picture of the under side it was yummy.
