Building a tube in hose assembly.
Well I have all my TIH runs done, but I'm not happy with the results.
I used standard compression fittings from the hardware store and aluminum fuel line.
Where the aluminum exits the compression fitting, it seams way to flimsy. Like it could kink and snap at any moment. And the compression fitting itself doesn't "feel" like it tightens enough. I know it's brass, and requires a semi delicate touch so that it doesn't strip, but I don't like the way this goes together. I'm not a dummy, but is there something better out there?
Any of you guys have similar thoughts or better experiences?
