By "open box wrench" I mean a box wrench with a slot in
it at the top, so you are able to slip it over a pipe, an open
wrench won't give you enough turning space under there.
Something like the bottom one in this pic:

Those wrenches are called flare nut wrenches, or sometimes line wrenches 
(slang). I highly recommened investing in a complete set, both standard and 
metric, of these helpful tools. They are very useful for removing nuts and fuel 
lines that are stripped so bad that an open end won't do it anymore. you can 
even bang a standard size onto a stripped metric with a hammer to remove 
especially rusty or stripped parts.
