Once in a while we need
to remove a rubber fuel line from its fitting -
maybe to replace a filter, perform some
maintenance - or - to swap out a line that has
aged beyond its useful life.
How often do you find
that even after the clamp is removed, the fuel
line will just not let go of the barbed fitting?
You can pull and twist but it seems the rubber
has glued itself onto the fitting and the only
solution is to use a knife and cut it off. If we
wanted to reuse that hose, it is too short after
cutting the last 1/2 inch off!
There must be
a solution to avoid having this struggle haunt
us on every connection in the plane. Watch how
experienced builders deal with this
