the tool your talking about is just a simple hose removal tool. it grabs the hard line and pushes the soft line back. it saves from cutting the hose. im not sure where you can get it. thats about the best way to say it. it may also be a lexus special tool. Catterpillar makes a bunch of specialty tools. if you have a cat dealer near you, go to the parts department and ask them if they have a tool parts book, or a shop tools parts book. and ask to look in there, any good cat parts man knows what book your talking about.

I use the hose removal tool for radatior and heater hoses,looks like a modified scratch awl.Sometimes I grip on the hose with a pair of pliers sometimes,twisting on it and be careful when doing this on plastic resiviors.

When removing hoses from a metal nipple.....I always try to twist it first. Otherwise, you may end up leaving part of it behind when you rip it off. Not sure what exactly that tool is called, but I like it. Reminds me of a large wire stipper....I'm surprised that princess auto doesn't have one. BTW: My BiL lives in Stoney Creek (up on the hill on Highland just east of the "the packers"). What a great store!
