Can anyone tell me if there is a special tool to remove fuel lines from filter or a special way to remove lines?
Thank you in advance

Make sure you use a AC Delco filter

IIRC, you squeeze the tabs and pull gently at each end and the lines come off nice and easy, reverse procedure is a push until you hear a solid click. Make sure you de-preSSurize the feed line. Then loosen gas cap.

Now you can remove the filter without getting a gas bath.

Oh yeah, I think the bolt for the bracket to body is a 10mm.

Take your time and it should not take more than 15 minutes.

This is correct. Some will say a disconnect tool is needed, but not necessary for the filter.

As mentioned above, the head of the bolt is 10mm. The threads are just "sheet metal" type threads that thread into a hole in the frame. Just get a bolt that will thread into the hole with Coarse threads....preferably Stainless.
