I need to remove the Condenser and need a advice on disconnecting the refrigerant lines.

Haynes mentions using the Ford Service Tool 34-001.

What are the work-arounds or suggestion of tool and procedure to remove and replace the lines into the condenser.

 

I had a mishap and sheered the lower refrigerant line at the condenser.  

Plan is to remove the condenser, attempt to remove the stub, Reinstall and replace damaged line...

 

Houston in the Summer without A/C is not fun.

If this is what I think it is (garter spring removal tool) you can buy a much cheaper plastic version of this type tool at NAPA etc.  I bought a set of various sizes for not much money, I needed it for the fuel line to engine coupling.
