High Pressure Oil Disconnect Tool
6.0L Ford Powerstroke
The early (2003 - 2004.5) 6.0L Powerstrokes utilize a quick disconnect (also known as a STC or Snap to Connect Fitting) between the high pressure oil pump discharge tube (also known as a "J Tube") and the branch tube and also at the ends of the short flexible braided lines that connect the standpipes to the oil rails . These can be exasperating to disconnect, especially without the proper tool! This tool makes the job much easier and prevents causing damage.
Hint: Don't pull on the line until you have used the tool to pry the release sleeve back. In fact, it is better to push the line in slightly while releasing with the tool, then pull back to disconnect the line.
Also works on International T444E and Ford 7.3L Powerstroke.
