Honda 8 Gas Line Fittings

This falls into the "don't do it until you know you can put it back together" Department.

I need to take apart my 2001 Honda 8 gas line at one connection. The connections have a metal fitting crimped on. Anyone ever taken these fittings off and then successfully recrimped them? Is a special tool needed? I don't want to get the connection off and then find I cannot reseal the connection with the fitting.

I wouldn't trust one of those fittings after taking it apart and then re-crimping it. Gasoline fuel lines are not where you want leaks...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have a Honda 8 and I don't recall any locations with crimp fittings. What connection is it holding together?

To answer your original question, like Sailingdog, I wouldn't trust re-crimping one of those fittings. There is a special tool, but carefully alternating sides with diagonal wire cutters will work.

not shure if you have the same fittings as my 6 hp but I had one start leaking so I cut it off and used a stinless steel wire/zip tie kind of thing it was 3/16" wide and was rated to 250 lbs put it on and used a pair of needle nose to get it real tight no leeks yet been 5 or 6 years. you can get them through mcmaster-carr we used them in a packing house for steam fitting at 120 psi.
