    Anyone know which tool does this flare? This is for the fuel hard line. It's like a bubble flare but further down the tube.

    I guess I'll replace the OEM hard line with an adapter to a steel braid line with 6AN fittings....a lot cheaper. Should've been more careful with the :sawzall: near the fuel line :anonymous:

    Many on the way.
    I have the Mastercool version (original?) of the hydraulic flare tool. It’s soooo smooth, if your tool budget allows, and/or you make enough lines, it’s well worth it. Also, stainless hard lines are no problem.

    A few years ago I borrowed a flare tool kit from Autozone. Not sure if they still have that borrowing program. Just left a deposit and got refunded when I returned the kit. That might be an option for you.
