I got a new tool/toy for my birthday and have set out to make myself a new set of fuel lines using -6 AN lines.
My car is an 88 GT with 3800SC and 5 speed. I originally used the 96 Pontiac Transport braided fuel lines but have always thought using 18 year old fuel hoses from a junk yard might not be the best idea.
I haven't had any issues with them yet. I still have 2 more sets that I scavenged from vans when I found them. But I don't know what condition the rubber is in inside the stainless braid.
The new lines are made for use with ethanol so they should also last a good long time.

What I got was an Eastwood flare tool and added the 37 degree AN option too.




I got the hose and AN fittings from a local speed shop. I got the 3/8" tubing from Autozone. I used the one that has a fitting on it that will attach directly to the stock Fiero fuel filter. I also got some 5/16" tubing for the return line. I bent the tubing the same as fuel line tubing I have now. I flared the ends to mate to the AN fittings and voila... Plug and play AN fuel lines that run from the filter to the fuel rail.

I still have a couple little details to finish up before I can install them but what do you think?
From top to bottom...
L67 fuel rail (mine actually has a modified rail so that the lines exit the front of the engine toward the side)
Transport lines
Stock Fiero lines
New custom AN lines

Great job, high end tool! Did something very similar on my 3800SC swap with the exception that I used the screw on fuel rail male # 6AN fitting to attach the lines. The clip on fuel rail connectors probably work well but the Russell screw together unit was chosen for my "over engineering" approach.

I wanted the ones with the threaded retainer too but they didn't have them in stock.

Thought about selling some sets of these? I would buy a set since I will be starting my 3800 swap before the end of the month

I might do so in the future but I want to test them out on my car before I unleash them on somebody else. Fuel aint no joke. If I did sell them it would be as an "off road only" type of thing where the buyer would agree that watching for and eliminating any fuel leaks would be their responsibility. I don't want to get sued when a Fiero catches on fire.

Oh it works like magic! I had a couple not turn out right because I didn't tighten the clamp tight enough and the tubing pushed out the back a little. But that was my fault.
Tighten it down good and it's a MACHINE. I might go flare some spare tubing scraps tonight just because it's fun.
Watch for Eastwood sales or shop other suppliers and you can save a few bucks. I actually got mine from Inline Tube but it's the same tool.
Hey look! It's on sale now... http://www.eastwood.com/pro...ng-flaring-tool.html

It would work anywhere we could get the fitting for the fuel rail. The ones I used here are push-on quick disconnects for more modern of a car. But they have fittings for just about any type of connection.

Well once you try them out on your personal car and you need another guinea pig, I will try them. I know "off road use only" but it would help ease the installation and they sure do look good!
