So far doesn't look like enougn interest to tool up a run of the tools. Anyone have suggestions/ideas?

Am I jumping to a conclusion, are people out there waiting for the next batch of kits to be available b4 speaking up about the tool?

Mark, JW, & Maury what's your time frames? ie: How soon do you need a tool & for how long?

Inquiringly,
Verell

The car comes back next week, but I'm sure it'll take me a month or so to put it all back together. If you were to loan your tool I could use it and send it back whatever time works out best for you and everyone else. I'm guessing I should only need it for a day or so.

I know this is being discussed for 308's and Mondials. Will this kit work on a USA spec 87 328 gts?

Verell,
count me in for a kit and tool. If you can confirm the cost of the tool I could send you the money for all parts in one transfer.
My car is a Euro 328 (1988) and I don't need the lines from fuel distributor to pump and fuel tank (they are stainless steel)

Thanks !

Verrel,

I am in no rush. Another couple of months after 26+ years probably won't hurt anything (I hope) In actuality my lines look very good but I wanted to replace them just for the heck of it.

Hey Buddy, you have a private email "Collets are coming!!!"

Mark

I'm in somewhat of a hurry as 2 of my lines are "bubbled" from previous heat damage or something. They have been that way for a year now, so I don't think they are as bad as they look, but would like to do it when I get the next chance. So I guess I didn't pay attention to the thread well enough. I have an 83 QV. My assumption is that the plastic line that you secured for me and this tool will still work on my car. Am I right?

SO, that being a safe assumption, I could do it as soon as I receive a tool.

Thanks!
JW

Verell, where do you stand on mailing out the insertion tooling? I'm getting my car back tomorrow and plan to be flying on it getting it all back and going.

I see 5 people down for the tools.

I'll runoff a pilot quantity (6-8) out of maple. Price will be $95 each + $11.90 S&I.

Again, 1st come, 1st served, send PayPal per instructions earlier in this thread.
Please use:
SUBJ: ORDER: Qty 1 CIS line insertion tool

I'm already 100% booked thru Friday, I've scheduled time the 1st part of next week to make them. They'll ship mid to late next week.

I'm sorry this is taking so long, New Years thru April is my peak season, & this year's peak is the largest I've had to date. I'm just now shipping orders that arrived in early March.

Please forgive my ignorance... Maple? Is that a mold for a machine shop or will the tool made of wood actually work too? Stupid question, I'm sure

Doesn't seem like a stupid question to me. I just thought he was sending me a wood tool, and because Verell made it, it would work fine.

It will be a fully functional tool made out of maple. Maple is an extremely hard, dimensionally stable, fine grained wood. It's often used for machining fixtures because it can be machined so precisely. Another use is for patterns for sand casting where it's used many times/day for 20-30 years or more. Using carbide tools, I can cut maple at much much faster rates than I can aluminum.

This tool is a good aplication for maple. Maple has just enough surface texture so that it will hold the Cohline tubing with less pressure than is required for Aluminium, hence less chance of damaging it.

STILL SOME APRIL KITS LEFT

I've had a couple of PMs asking if there are any kits available. At this point I still have a couple of the late April kits w/o customers. I also have a couple of customers who've said they're 'in' but haven't sent payment. I'm following up with them to see if they're really 'in', or if I can make their kits available.

Haven't verified w/Cohline, but I'm pretty sure they get containers every other month, so the next round of kits will most likely ship in late June.

Verell,
How do I go about ordering your fuel line replacement kit? I can't seem to find where you indicate the price for the lines and the installation tool. Thanks

Lou,
See this thread's posts #1 & #32.

Don't drag your feet. I'll do a full count of the April delivery orders tonight, but I think there may only be 1 kit left.
