Default gas filter nightmare

Hi all,
Yesterday I attempted to remove my gas filer from my 96' 150. The line to the engine came off realitively easy, but the back would budge. The tool wouldn't go in far enough(you are suppose to push the line towards the filter as you push in towards the line at the same time with the tool), so after some time I gave up and had it towed to a shop down the road.I cut the reat tit off thinking I could work easier. I don't usally give up but this time it was best. Replacing the line to the tank WITHOUT a lift wasn't my idea of a job I wanted to tackle.

Anyway... now I await for the results and am praying they didn't have to replace the line. Any thoughts as to where I could have succeeded?

Had a aftermarket quick connect put on. The line from Ford was discontinued. The disconnect on there now, from the tank, is a push button. I don't know why the other was so difficult. The shop I went to couldn't remove the old line, neither.
