Honestly I don't know, I haven't seen your engine setup. Maybe someone else can chime in on that one.
I changed mine last weekend and my ends were made of rubber with a metal center. They pulled right off with some force and pushed back in just the same. They weren't easy to remove but they weren't difficult either. No tools were required to remove them.
If you do get a boot puller make sure to spend the money and get a good one. I remember buying a cheap one many years ago that tore up the rubber of the boot. I had to replace half the boots!
