What kind of tool was it? Did it look like this?

What line are you having a problem with? Is it a rubber hose, metal line that uses that type fitting that that tool fits or just a regular flare fitting?

I tried two types of tools,one as shown by you and one of the plier types. It is the two braided lines from the fuel pump,they have that fitting that require theese tools, had trouble getting the tool in there, and broke off inside fittings....thanks I need help.

So what you are saying you are going to somehow have to fish out that broken piece of the tool from inside the fuel line fitting? Try a piece of mechanics wire or a cotter pin puller. Looks like this.

the tool did not brake the two fittings on the fuel pump broke. and are now stuck inside,there the only thing keeping me from installing the tank.. thanks

Inside the tank? Seems the only way to get that out would be to take the tank completely off the vehicle and turn it upside down. Do you need new clamps?
