    Did you end up using these fittings on the sending unit? I placed my summit order and may return the plastic locking fittings for these. I was looking at those very threaded fittings on the Russell website, but blew them off as being for another application.

    I used the plastic ones as I didn't know those screw ones were available. You can see the parts I used in my thread. The nice thing with the screw ones is you can get it in a 3/8" to -8 and not have to use a -6 to -8 connector since the plastic lock ones only come in 3/8" to -6 for the feed line. I used the Russell spring lock fittings you and I both listed for the fuel rail connections.

    Don't be afraid of making your own braided lines, its actually quite simple. This was the first time I ever did them and still have no leaks. Tip is to get the tool that Summit has to cut the lines and not use a cut off wheel, makes it simpler.

    I think I'll probably get those threaded fittings. Not a fan of plastic anything. The reason I went with the crimped hoses is I wanted the Teflon lines. Since Teflon cold flows I didn't want to run the risk of a leak later on. I have acess to a crimper, but I didn't try too hard to find the proper ferrules.

    I ended up getting those plastic snap in fittings. The return fitting slipped right off today. Just watch out guys.

    The tank has been sitting with the fittings attached for the past month, while I have been waiting for the custom hose to come in. I decided to check it today and it pulled off.

    No problem, I think a lot of people have referenced this post for quite a few things and it has lots of good information.
