    For those who are interested in installing steel fuel line as a correct replacement for OEM, you'll need a flairing tool which can be purchased from Amazon for as little as $10. Do it right, the first time.

    Most fuel injection rubber hose is manufactured to SAE J30R9 specifications, having a temperature range of -34 to 135 C (-29 to 275 F), with intermittent use at 150 C (302 F). As previously mentioned, the fuel lines on most vintage tractors are routed very close to the intake/exhaust manifold, and exhaust manifold temperatures range between 500 to 1000 F or more, far exceeding the maximum temperature range of the rubber hose.

    I've never tested plain edpm rubber hose and brake juice.. might disolve it. I know neither will take the pressure iunless the braided hose for high pressure pumps.

    I just stick to metal anywahere i can on most things.

    If your sure. I like to watch the line pulsate when braking.

    I find it amusing that the OP of this thread has stayed quiet simple because of the way his gas line is done. It's ok William. Do it your way and do it safely. -kid

    Life has kept me busy, finally getting around to this...I'm wondering if this fuel line will fit a TO-20?

    i wouldn't bet on an N line fitting exactly.. just buy a 5$ piece of brake line and bend it up and you know it will fit.

    I havn't ought an oe fuel line in a decade.. brake line is too cheap... no reason to pay 4x the cost for some guy in china to bend a piece of straight line to fit my tractor...
