Stainless Fuel Line And Flare Tool

Scrounging the junkyard for parts for this build has been a way to keep the overall cost down. We found this flexible stainless braided fuel line in a junkyard Cherokee. We had to use a single-flare block borrowed from a friend to grab enough of the tubing to flare the harder stainless 5⁄16-inch steel. We used the single-flare block and swage with the little double flare steel inserts from our double-flare tool to flare the harder tubing. We also sourced a 25-foot coil of 5⁄16-inch steel line (PN 92705.03) with fittings from Quadratec. We can cut the steel line to length, bend it to fit in the CJ, and connect it to our fuel system using double flairs and junctions. The tubing will easily handle the high pressure of our fuel system.
