Fuel line

I know this isn't a Ford but my question is pretty generic. Our Pontiac's fuel line is pretty corroded and needs to be replaced. I have a tubing bender, but the days of flair and compression fittings are long over for fuel delivery. Is there any special crimpers or tools needed to fabricate new? I can't find anyone with a prefabbed and given the year, I'm not likely to find one in a salvage yard in good condition. I can bend it, just need to know what I might need for end prep.

Re: Fuel line

Well THAT was a switch. Normally I'm looking for parts and accessories for my truck and a lot of places don't go back to 73. This site's latest Pontiac was a 92.Slighly different from an 04, but thanks anyway.

Re: Fuel line

Yup, and surprisingly, not one carries a replacement line. After taking a closer look at it, I'm just going to couple in a repair patch. It's a solid line from the filter back by the gas tank all the way to the fuel rail. Nope, ain't gonna do it. About 30" of 5/16th and 2 fuel rated couplings. Just a pain in the ass since the next good hunk of metal is behind the steering rack. Brake lines aren't far behind, either, but who needs brakes? As Ettore Bugatti once said, "My car is meant to go, not stop."
