This may sound stupid,but does anyone know who has 7/16"insulated clamps for 3/8" fuel lines?The ones that came with the kit are 3/16"and the others are too big 3/4"?.Longacre has 5/16"and 9/16",no 7/16".

Joe:

what tool did you use to flare your lines? Not to hijack this post but I've read that 37* is required when flaring fuel lines with AN fittings. I've found the 37* tools to be quite expensive. I tested using a 45* tool on a scrap piece of line but the tube kept slipping as the flaring part was twisted down. Use a tool from HF. Did you have to heat up the line?

Curtis-Sorry,but I was talking about fuel lines.I'm going to use Tri-state's brake lines.
The search is over,I found some cool plastic ones.They're made from some black nylon-like material,really hug the line,and make a real clean installation.Pack of 15 was like $1.50 (tax included),and they weigh nothing!

I'm talking about fuel lines as well. The coiled roll that came with the kit needs to be flared for AN fittings.

How about these line clamps? You can put a little shrink wrap around the line if you want to insulate it.

Curtis-No flares,I used a Russell fitting,one part slides over the line,an olive goes next,then other part,tighten it up,done!Just be sure to use a tubing cutter for a square cut,and deburr the inside edge of the tube.Aeroquip and Earl's make them ,too.
