New Fuel Line
#1
Just got my new fuel line.
We discovered a pinhole in the current line near the tank
and decided to replace the whole line rather than do a patch
job. A previous owner replaced the line but with incorrect
routing. The new line is 3/8 SS and has a shipping bend
about 180 degrees and maybe 20 inches in diameter.
That portion is labeled "shipping bend". Go figure.
Any members have a method for straightening the
line without damaging it?

This is quite common, and relatively easy to undo. Simply bend it back by grabbing the lines beyond the bend and working it slowly back in line---the line is quite flexible. Just don't overdo things and kink the pipe.

I have always used the garage floor starting arms length from the bend and pushing it to the floor. That bend is designed to be the strait run.

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
