Replacing both rubber fuel hoses going to fuel rail
I was searching for ideas on replacing both short rubber hoses connected to the fuel rail (the one for incoming and outgoing fuel from the fuel rail both connected to two separate 8mm or 7.something mm diameter metal fuel lines). I was planning to remove the old hoses, in the process destroying the crimped end of the hose of course, but keeping the end of both metal fuel lines intact, so that in the future I could have a hose attached properly (crimped fitting) to the metal fuel line. But in the meantime I just wanted to slip on fresh hoses and use a jubilee clip/adjustable hose clip on it.
So, my question is, by removing the old hose (with their corresponding crimped ends of course) but keeping the original ends of the metal fuel line, allow a properly sized hose (8mm maybe?) to slip over the ends of the metal fuel line? Or must I cut off the end portion of the metal fuel line? Maybe someone has a good closeup picture of the ends? Thanks!
