Tohatsu fuel tank filter

How do I take off the fuel pick up elbow on my Tohatsu fuel tank,I have tried undoing it but it wont move,don`t want to break it.I just want to check the filter is clean.

Tohatsu fuel tank filter

It Should just unscrew & it will come out of the hole , but there may be some white sealant on that will flake off though it has an O ring so shouldn't leak .

Just unscrewed this one , it will be tight as it has an O ring but once it starts turning it will get easier !
Often the pick up pipe is a fraction longer which will make the filter bend so that makes it tighter too !

Thanks for that,I shall try undoing it again,perhaps get some mole grips as near to the base as possible where its stronger.thanks for the photos.
I like the fuel gauge on the tank,bought the engine 12 months ago need to get it running asap,hoping to test it out on Ullswater in 4 weeks time.
