There is supposed to be a special tool but some can get lucky using to big screwdrivers locked together.
Put the screwdrivers on each side and lock together and turn. But be very careful I have also see people snap off the line nipples doing it that way.
Also check for parts first last I heard the parts were on National backorder.
You will also have to take the divers side sending unit out and install a piece of rope on the hose and pull the rope through the tank and tie it to the new unit and pull the rope back through installing the new one.
