Thanks - this is helpful.   Now looks like I need further education on types of flare
(or other ) fittings.

Is the typical Audi flare fitting that fuel system connects to referred to as  JIS
Metric 60 deg. Cone seat (Komatsu) or some other specification.

I figured someone on these lists might know.

I am hoping to find just as single solid brass fitrting that goes from 16mm inv. Flare
to 14mm flare so I don't have to make up an adaptor hose.

Try www.ferryinc.com

If nothing else they can custom make whatever kind of line you want. I've had them do
turbo oil lines and the most I ever paid was like $9.

Once again Audi does a one-off in the Coupe quattro.  The fuel line that goes from 3B
rail is 14 mm  inverted flare (female) as best as I can determine.  The pressure side of
fuel line for the Coupe Quattro with 7A engine is 16 mm flare apparently.  So I have
been searhing for an appropriate adaptor to mate the 3B Fuel rail to the 7A delivery

Looks like I need a 16mm inverted flare (female) on one side and a 14mm flare (male) on
the other.

Anyone know where I can find this?
