I couldn't get the pump and its carrier out of the part that remains in the
tank without the tool and a wrench.

Others have reported that they were able to extract just wearing leather
gloves.   Pump basket has to twist a bit (if you look carefully, I think
you can see the outlines of the detent and the path to it on the outside of
the retainer) and then it comes out easily.
