    Well, onto my next step in my TBi swap (I finally found my VSS.. it was sitting on the floor of the truck. Musta fell off when I gutted he dash).I need to take the fuel lines out of my 87, since they're still in good shape. I tried an open end wrench on the fuel filter on the frame.. but, no luck.I ended up rounding off one of the ends on the nut. I really don't wanna invest in line wrenches, since I know I would ever use them again, and they're expensive. How can I get these lines out?

    Line wrench is the tool for the job...and they're not that spendy. 3 wrenches usually covers most anything on the truck, and you will use them more often if you have them. Brake lines, fuel lines etc etc...

    I have more blue moon tools than I can shake a stick at.
    Sears has flare nut wrenchs that are not exspensive.
    And as ya see now with the nut rounded off it is gonna be a PITA to get off.
    $5 for a wrench or a lot of frustration to get something apart?
    I spent $60 for 2 brake bleeder wrenchs and they are worth every penny.
    Looks like it is vice grip time for the fuel line.
