Question
how do you make fuel line clamp from a piece of fuel line??

I inherited these fitting setups already made,see pic, but don't know how to make one from scratch. They seem to work fine.

Any help will be appreciated.

P.S. Happy Birthday too me!! March 17th.
Guess I'll have to out and drink some green beer
That's what I did on my 21st birthday, 40 years ago.
Seems like only yesterday.

Just cut a short piece of fuel line & stretch it over the other with long nose pliers. - John.

I really have to wonder why the question even needs to be asked.

I found the best way to install them, is to stretch the small piece over the proper size nut driver. Then you can put the fuel line into the opening on the nut driver, and just slide the small piece onto the fuel line.
