Best Tool to get at Fuel Line Flared Nut

Hello All:

I recently changed the fuel rail fitting on my LMM to the PPE fitting. I have it on, not stripped, not leaking, but am unable to tighten the flared nut off the pump.

I'm wondering whats the best tool for the job as this is apita to get at. I have tried all my tools, and don't want to strip, or puncture the line.

A crowfoot wrench ?
An Injector socket ?
Flare Nut socket ?

Please understand I live in Canada, and the specialty tools are not always readily available.

Any help appreciated.

Crowsfoot might work, or maybe a stubby wrench.
