I have a low-pressure braided steel line from the gascolator to carb on my Sonex.
I need to re-route the fuel line.
My question is: on both ends, I have a 90 deg swivel -6 AN fitting. Can I remove the fitting and install a straight fitting into the already-compressed hose end, or must I make a new hose?
This is low pressure, as in gravity-feed only. No pumps.
I just didn't know if having a fitting compressed onto the end already would have compressed the hose inside the fitting to the point where it won't seal if I only install a new mandrel (straight) for expediency.
