If stainless braided, I'd recommend the corresponding tool from Koul Tools. Assembling them sucks. I'm ordering the -6an tool myself looks well worth the $30.

Hey Victor ,

I use the Russell "Pro Classic" black nylon braided line

In fact , I even run this hose on my 57 - 150 that's running E85

Been using it for many years .. ZERO issues

Hope this helps

I'm using the black braided on my current fuel injection install only because it's a million times easier to thread on the "an" fittings. Problem is I like the abrasion resistance that the stainless had. Only issue is anything the stainless rubs against, it scratches, so you have to make sure it's secured well all the up to the motor.

Since finding out about the Koul Tool I mentioned, I plan to order and swap out my lines at some point for stainless braided again.

Foolish and expensive to run braided hose front to back. Run flex from tank to hard line on frame, hardline front to back on frame, and flex from front of hardline on frame to engine.

Not to mention all rubber based braided hoses are subject to rod from the inside like regular rubber hose. so do you want to replace 4 foot of hose or 20 foot of hose.
Now if you choose a Teflon lined braided hose then it is good for longer than you will live and the cost of the hose and fittings goes up about 40%

Thanks guys I have zero experience at bending hard line and flare the ends or have the tools for it that is why I was thinking of Russell fuel hose and so I could use AN fittings for tank and carb as well

Unfortunately, none of the fairly inexpensive flaring kits reliable flare 3/8" fuel line. I've had kits from both Matco & OTC and neither would flare it more than once / twice before the clamp starts slipping. You'll need a hydraulic flaring kit. Thus same reason I went with braided. Although a good flaring tool would be a good investment overall.

Sounds like the PTFE hose is the way to go. Just a little more money upfront.

"Sounds like the PTFE hose is the way to go. Just a little more money upfront."
As a caution: The PTFE hose is relatively stiff, and cannot be put into a tight radius. Doing so, will kink the liner.
It's no fun to assemble, either. The outer shell has to be stripped back, the braid flared out, so the "olive" can be pushed over the liner. Then, getting the braid into the end of the fitting can be a hassle.
