Just remember you're working in an explosive environment...which is actually pretty hard to ignore while you're trapped in the trunk of a car fill with petrol vapors. Come to think of it, maybe it would be a good idea to set up some air injection to keep the lung damage to a minimum.

We're speaking of the locking mechanism for the pump itself, not the 
ring on the external surface of the tank.  I, too, have done this job 
without the tool (IIRC), but having the tool makes the job a LOT 
easier.  You would never be able to get prying tools down in there ...
