Automotive machining question…

Early 2002. This is typical.
It's sad, too... I'm sure a ton of folks on here are subject matter experts - either for real or in their heads - but many of us are genuinely looking for simple answers we hadn't thought of ourselves, and folks just have to jump on the bandwagon of 'thrash the OP for being stupid or newbie' instead of reading the post and answering the question...
My dad had a saying for them: "I'd like to buy them for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth!"
I'm not saying I'm perfect - far from it - but the world could do better by adopting the attitude of "If you can't say anything nice don't saying anything at all..." a little more.

Understood. Hopefully you were able to push enough hose onto the tubing to gain additional overlap, enough for 2 hose clamps at each end. Without being able to bead the tubing this is the next best alternative.
Check with a Dorman Products dealer. They have parts you would not believe , like oil pans, fuel tanks and ,yes, fuel lines. Suspect that they may be the OEM.
