Leaking fuel pump inlet hose

79 jeep cj5 V8 hose going intO the fuel pump has become mushing and. Started leaking. The rubber hose runs about 4 ft to the fire wall and connects to a metal fuel tube...a crimp connection is used to connect to the tube. I would like to remove the crimp clamp and just put in a new 4 ft section.
What's best way to disconnect the crimp connection. It's down a couple feet along the fire wall.
Thr return vent line also appears to be worn.... Is the vent under pressure? Can it leak or should I replace both hoses?

Any help is appreciated!

Just cut and pry the old hose clamp off and replace it with a new one.

Any suspected leaking or deteriorating fuel lines should be replaced, both supply and return.

Be sure to get the fuel-injected rated hose. It holds up to e-blended fuels better.
