The fellas in the shop didn't have a metric flaring tool, so they drilled out a 3/8" english flaring tool to accept a 10mm tube. Cut the fitting off the original piece. Slipped it on the 10mm tube as far as it would go around the 90 degree bend. Pre-fit the flaring tool onto tube so we would know how much to cut off the tube. Cut and flare tubing. Attach to oil reservoir and measure how much to cut off the rubber hose end. Added a flare to rubber hose end so I didn't have to use 2 hose clamps.
Way cool!
Any photos?
Thanks,
Mark
