Fuel Line Repair

Internal diameter is more important than external.

You want to carefully cut the crimp of the hard sections of this line by 
cutting sideways across the crimp, then gently prying off the braided 
section as not to damage the flare on the hard line.

You also want to look at the orientation of the hard sections before you 
cut of the braided section, because once you replace it with the rubber 
hose and tighten the clamps, you will not be able to swivel or adjust the 
hard section to fit the fuel rail or FPR.

I could take some pictures of the cut up line that I have and email them to 
you if it helps.
