    Brian, Thanks for the tip. I've been using engine oil. After a few day with fuel in the line thew are reasonably hard to remove so I guess the fuel washes the oil away.
    Steve, Good idea. If the stiffer line does not do I I'll buy some new fittings. Summit aviation supply seems to have some nice ones.

    This post caught my attention because I just replaced the fuel sending unit gasket on my passenger side fuel a couple weeks ago and replaced the old stiff lines with the hose noted by others here.

    Motor oil, fuel lube or mmo would work well too, and no risk of contaminating fuel system or carburetor.

    Steve B. Based on my experience, It's worth taking a quick look at the new hoses to see if they have developed a kink over time.

    I installed the mil6000D fuel line. Worked great. Much less prone to kinking. Thanks for the help everyone.

    I am ordering the MIL-DTL 6000D for the wing tank in my pa16 but forgot to measure the size. Does someone here know?
    Thanks.
