flange tool and bushing tool

Ok does anybody know where i can get the tool that makes flanges for the solid fuel lines?

I also need to get or make a tool that can remove and install the bushings for my 12 bolt rearend. They are the bushings that the upper control arms bolt to. Pounding on them will ruin them, i figure some sort of press will be the most efficent way to remove and install them, does someone make/sell such a item?

hammer them in with grease after putting them in the freezer

otherwise you need a big press

we never use a press

we use hammer and pipe or socket

you worry too much.


good luck

You are replacing the original bushings with neoprene bushings, are'nt you? Neoprene bushings do not need to be pressed, or frozen.

As far as the fuel lines, are you talking about a double flare tool?

on the fuel lines is this what your looking for?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Maste...motiveQ5fTools

this one is a little cheaper, but doesn't do as much,

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Maste...A1%7C72%3A1171

if the linka are dead, search for Arctic Tools on E-bay and Mastercool
71475 or 71300



on the bushings, there are a number of ways to replace them.
burning, cutting, drilling or pressing.
if you are doing the bushings on the control arms, use a piece of metal in the opening to support the ears to prevent them from being crushed.

http://www.handsontools.com/Kent-Moo...M_p_18808.html

or you can use a big C-clamp with a piece of pipe and a big washer.
if you are replacing the complete bushing, use a little oil on the outter shell.
some people freeze the new bushings and heat where it mounts in. i've never had much luck doing it that way, but it may work for you.

or you can make a tool, it really isn't anything more than some pipe, heavy washers, a couple of nuts, and some all thread.
this will give you the general ideal how to make it and how it works,

if you need to press the new bushings in, use a bigger washer and reverse the procedure.
if your replacing the outter shell too, you can crush the old one and it comes right out.


or you can do them like this,

I got rid of my snapon hand flaring tool 4 1/2 years ago, and purchased the Mastercool 71475 flaring kit. I won't say how much I paid for it off of the tool truck, but it has saved me a bunch of material waste, from deformed double flares alone.

It is a little bulky for some in chassis jobs, but I am 100% pleased with it's results.

the flare tool seems to be what i want but, way out of my price range for somthing i am going to use once.

I got the bushings in, I made a press, I tried hammering the old ones and after mangling one of them I decided i did not want to mess up the new ones.

I got a foot long piece of threaded rod and various pieces of pipe and pipe caps, drilled a few holes and managed to engineer a press that worked perfectly for removing the old bushings (and bushing sleeve) and putting the news ones in with out damaging them.

I was really proud of myself

It's a good tool even for >$300, considering it'll do a lot more than just 45's. It does need the ability to do AN flares included for that price, though, IMO.

Unless you know someone really good with a CNC machine.

Luckily I do. He is just not quite finished with them yet. He wants to do some AN flares on his current project.

I don't have a garage.

Like the old adage "where there is a will, there is a way", let no obstacles stand in the way.

Nicely done.

Somewhere I have a photograph of a young, tanned, buff (well, sunburned and no belly lol) me standing by my first engine I rebuilt. In my kitchen! The microwave is seen right behind where the engine sits on its stand.

That engine sat in my kitchen for two years (that's another story...)- much to my better half's dismay. The thing was, I had a shop- but I liked looking at the engine!

In my guest room I have, my 383 stroker, my new set of aluminum heads, a set of wheels and tires (which are for sale), my new 12 bolt posi rearend, most of my hand tools (7 tool boxes) , a kitchen table (which serves as my desk), a twin bed, book shelf, etc.

I hate it I want my new motor in my El Camino and it is driving me nuts, once i Figure out what trans I am going with there will be a tranny in there as well.

I'm guessing either you are a bachelor, or buy the better half a lot of dinners out, flowers, etc.

i haven't bought the mastercool flare tool yet.
when i first saw them on E-bay, they were around $250.00.
i agree with it should come with the dies for AN flares.
i guess when i get one i'll need to find some one that works in a machine shop.

back when i was still in high school, i assembled the motor for my Vega in my bedroom.
even though all the parts were clean and it didn't take me too long, my Mom still wasn't too thrilled about it.
