    fuel lines

    ok so i am putting in my fuel lines at the momment.

    my question is whats the best way to cut steel braid line? i was told to get a hack saw with a 32 or high tooth count and that would work fine but it seem that i get all the way threw just fine and at the end it always screws up. i use eletrical tape were i want to cut also.

    the other question is any tips of tricks to get them to go into the actual fitting?

    thanks justin

    The little cut off wheels on a 1/8 die grinder, cheap and easy.

    I never had no trouble with a hack saw but you gota tape it good...I use masking tape wrapped several times around. Also get a set of aluminum safe jaws for your vise that are made for the AN fittings...makes it easier.

    Be hard to cut braided hose with a tubing cutter...............be kinda mushy/squishy/messy.
    Best way is the thinnest cut-off wheel possible. I use a .045" thick wheel all the time after giving it a couple wraps of electrical tape. Really wouldn't even need the tape it cuts so neat.
