92 Shadow 2.5 TBI Auto.

One of these (right where the fuel filter connects to the fuel line) is leaking. I was going to replace it with some regular fuel injection and hose clamps. I can't get the sucker off! I would saw it off, but for obvious reasons, I'll pass on doing that. I sprayed massive amounts of WD-40 on it, and I'll let it sit.

it's at an angle where I can't hit it with a screwdriver and hammer :(

If you are going to replace that short rubber flex section, why not just cut the rubber with a razor knife?

It sounds like it is leaking at the crimp if I understand correctly. There are 2 ways to handle that.

You can remove the quick connect assembly section and install a section of 5/16 inch SAE30R9 fuel line hose with solid band fuel line clamps (available at NAPA).
Or if you want to retain the quick connect setup, remove the quick connect assembly from both the filter and steel fuel line, cut the crimps (diagonally with a hax saw), and install a new section of SAE30R9 fuel line hose using solid band fuel line clamps in place of the crimps. This assumes your fittings are not leaking any place else.

Frankly, I would just do the first option and forget about the quick connect section. There is really not that much benefit unless you change the fuel filter quite often.

i'd rather just buy fuel injection hose instead of replacing the broken fitting. I'd like to get the broken fitting (quick connector) off because I don't like those. I wish I could just dremel the sucker off.
