    Default Hard Line Fabrication?

    I want to do stainless steel hardlines from my fuel pressure regulator to my 6109 carbs. Does anyone know who does this type of fabrication work in the So Cal area?

    If you want to pay some one to do it and be done, more power to you...but it isn't too hard to do. The stainless tubing is available through Amazon for about $20 for 5 feet and you can get a nice bender for about $60. Just another option.

    They sell .035" wall stainless tube at your local parker store. Theres also a company called Duhig stainless that carries all sorts of stainless fittings and tubing etc. They carry the ham-lok fittings that are identical to swageloks. It isn't hard to do just take your time. If you are doing 1/2" I'll let you borrow my bender if you send it back.

    Thanks Todd! I go right by Dave's place everyday on my way to work. I think I'll swing by and see him tomorrow morning...

    Thanks again for the awesome work on my bilge! The gelcoat is so pretty that I have a hard time drilling any holes in it while rigging the thing! LOL

    Default Tubing Source

    Hi Guys

    For you guys that are on the east coast there is a place in Pa. that sells stainless tubing and also have DOM and 4130 tubing and have good prices and sell in small quanities and are great people to deal with. The name of the place is Dillsburg and there # is 717-432-4589. If you haven't done any bending of tubing it is not rocket science but does take a little thinking to get the bends correct. The draw back is that if you bend it wrong there isn't any way to straighten it out you have to start with an other piece of material. One of the better benders for the price is one that I got from one of the tool trucks a long time ago that used to stop by the shop. It was made by Robinair and the number on it 14528 and it bends 4 different sizes of tubing. Starting at 3/16",1/4",5/16" and 3/8". I am not sure if it is still available. I have also made quite a few different dies to bend tubing on different radius' than what was commercially available. It is not that hard to make the dies if you have a lathe and a little time.
