I had to get under the car and look on the battery side. The tube with the crimp is there. The fitting is very tight and located up inside the body. When I started to loosen the pipe I noticed that it was bending so I stopped. I was able to use a plummers faucet wrench and have my son hold the other fitting with some channel locks. We were able to get the fitting loose and I was able to change the orifice tube. Assembly was in reverse and it all went back together.
Thanks for the help.
