You'll need a quick disconnect tool for the one end of the fuel filter and two open end wrenches for the other. But since you ran out of gas you probably burned out the fuel pump. The electric fuel pump is inside the gas tank. The fuel flowing through it is what keeps the electric motor cool. By running it dry I bet you need a fuel pump. HTH. -Jim
