    so im replacing the damn injector pump on the blazer, but i am hung up on getting 2 of the lines off the pump itself. they are the 2 on the bottom of the pump that sit almost right ontop of the block. its killing me! any special tools i should be using besides an open end 5/8 wrench?? any ideas?

    :confused:

    Undo those lines from the injectors, then pull the IP and those two lines out as an assembly. Once it's out those two will be easier to get to.

    I managed to get mine shoved back in with the lines attached still. wasn't pretty, lots of cursing and shoving required. I looks like it came out the same way too, from the way the lines were bent

    Offset angle wrenchs will do it. They used to be expensive since Mac and Snap-On were the only places selling them - but now you can buy a whole Chinese set from Harbor Freight for $19, whereas one wrench used to cost $30 from Snap-On.
    Also, a 12 point flare-nut wrench works well -but sometimes you need to bend it a little. I keep two in my diesel tool box - with different angle bends on the handles.

    FWIW, I've used 12pt crow's-foot wrenches(?) on a 3/8" ratchet & extension to tighten up leaky lines.

    x2. it would be easier to reinstall it by having all the lines hooked up to the pump before you place it in the valley anyway...

    I use crowfoot line wrenches myself. leaving the lines attached seems pretty easy also.

    ive already got 6 of the 8 off without taking the lines all off. those were pretty easy, but i think im going to have to take these last 2 lines off to get the pump off. what a pain in the ass!!!
