Default HOw do I remove the disconnects on the fuel rail?

Since the PO cut off the bottom of the chrome fuel rails (At the bottom of the engine where the rubber/nylon meets the fuel rails) I'm going to have to make a double flare and slide some efi hose overtop. To do this, I need to get them off. How would I seperate those round connectors at the top?


And a side note, I installed a later (92 or so) fuel filter on my 67 and installed some of those ford disconnects. It kind of just slides on and clicks.. Those things are good for 100psi!? How tight should it be going on?

you will need two of them. the supply line is thicker then the return line. you can get a set of 5 or 6 of them at pepboys for about $10
