Default Disconnecting fuel line without a tool

Hey is there any way I can disconnect the fuel line without a tool? I can't get one for two more days, and I really want to get the engine out tonight! Is there any way???

maybe find a ring of stiff plastic and push it up in there will work, like a credit cars or something

I did mine without the special tool. It's been a couple of years so I don't remember what I did but I know I did it. So give it a try.

Worst case just pull the intake manifold off but leave it tethered to the car with the fuel line, it'll bend out of the way so you can pull the motor out.
