    #1 = wrenches

    #2 = wrenches again...
    kinda obvious isn;t it?


    #3 = no idea

    #4 = you could try to use compressed air to push the fluid out but this will prob make more of a mess...
    just use rags and little cans to drain the lines in as you go...

    get 4 buckets/containers and leave the lines in them while you work.

    there's not much fluid in the system... a small cool-whip jar is plenty big
