Default Little mechanic help

I need to change the feed line?(Pressure) hose on my 96 GMC. I can't get to the end on to reservoir. is there a trick to it? Do I need to remove the reservoir? I'm close to just putting a match to the whole thing.

YES...trick is to find someone to do it for you.:banghead

No trick. Is the hose tight at the pump, if so back it off and install on both before tightening.

I can't get to the end on thereservoir to loosen it at all. That's the problem. I didn't know if I needed to remove the recervoir itself, hook up the hoses and put it all back in place or what. It's a bitch to get to that's for sure.

You shouldn't have to remove it. Most likely the problem is you need a line wrench. Without one you just might have to remove it but the problem is getting it back on and tight.

I am pretty sure I have a line wrench you can use if you need it.

Or depending on where you are located I could give you a hand if you need one.

Mike

and If i recall correctly the trick is a shorty wrench and a prybar... (busted my knucks on peoples cars for 10 yrs till I gave it up for clean work)
