    just cut the line back and put a new ferrel on... It probably got cockeyeed when you tightened it...

    .02 at your local auto parts. You'll see it when you undo the nut and take it off, the ferrel will have it's "seating band" at an angle...

    nothing wrong with the plastic, just have to properly install the system and route it correctly..

    except you almost have to change them out every year or so because they get so brittle they break when you move them around while working on something else...cheap sh!t

    ah, your nuts... :wink1:

    Probably had a dozen in cars over 25 yrs, and have yet to have one fail... :confused: And some where in use for many moons....

    Actually, the one I run now, I snaked thru some small, fancy, high pressure steelbraided line I found, ya know the stuff with white, hard inner line... small stuff, like brake line... worked out awesome.. slid right thru, little shrink tube at the ends and it worked out good...
