Braided hose

I can accross some braided hose. Im not sure what I have got? The inside is a semi-hard plastic,and has a little bend to it, then that is covered with the braided steel. Was told that it was -10an. Is this the correct hose for fuel line. I was thinking the inside would be a rubber.. If it is the right stuff how do you connect the fittings to it. I taped the line ,cut the hose, but when I tried to install the fittings over the tape I couldn't get it to fit. When I peeled back the braided stuff it fits nice and snug over the plastic but then I have a bunch of frayed steal sticking up around it.. If anyone could inlighten me on how to do this trick I would really appreciate it.

Thanks for any info...

Sounds to me like you have steel covered Teflon line. Doesn't use AN fittings but a special designed for it. The fittings are kinda like a compression fitting. You have a internal that has a tube that fits inside the teflon tube. A tapered bushing that goes between the teflon and the braid and a tapered nut that goes over braid. Heres how it works. You put the nut on the line ,press the ferrule in place till the teflon seats on the shoulder inside the ferrule. Here's the tricky part. A special tool is required to seat the teflon in the ridges inside the ferrule. It can be done with a tapered punch if you're careful, but usually you will just wind up PO'd. Push the internal tube into the teflon tube till it seats on the ferrule and tighten the nut till it seats against the hex on the internal part of the fitting. Don't need to crank it, just seated. Cutting tip: wrap with black tape and cut squarely with a thin wheel or chop saw. Use something very sharp to trim the feather off the teflon being careful not to damage the end.
Don't know about using it a fuel line but it does make great compressor lines.

Yes, it is Aeroquip 00624-668-12, Mil Spec MIL-H-27267. 1000 PSIG. 5/8 inch inside diameter, Tephlon lined. Don't know what any of that means though. Does anyone know if this line can be used for Fuel line or is it not recomended? Thought I got a good deal on some fuel line but maybe not. Thanks for any help

Found a box off that stuff at a swap meet...

Threw it all out...never did find the right fitting. Only cost $5 bucks for the box. The guy told me when I bought it he didn't know if it could be used for an automotive application. Looked like hydrolic hoses I have seen in use in industrial applications.
