How do you remove the rear brake distribution block off rear?

Does it just twist off or pop off or what? I need to change my brake lines off my old rear to this new one and am trying to figure out how to remove the block off of the rear end, the guy I bought the new rear off of cut the rubber flexible line off of the distribution block.

The vent line (rubber line part) unscrews from the axle tube. Just remove it & the block will come right off.

the block is held down with a breather which is threaded into the axle tube
if you look at it close you can see where you would be able to put a wrench and unbolt it

Ok so pull the rubber vend hose off then unscrew the nipple from the axle housing and the block should come off?
