1988 Suburban, the project continues. - Nov 29, 2009

Photo 1 shows the size difference between the brass union fitting for nylon fuel lines that I am going to use, and the Ford fuel filter that I am using, time to open it up a little- but how to do it without getting metal filings and shavings all over.

Photo 2 shows my idea of using bolt and stud extractor, I figured the taper on the extractor and the metal-biting ability would allow me to slowly turn the filter onto then off and slightly rotating to repeat would just open the tubing as I had hoped, and if I were to get any metal coming loose from this operation the highly magnetic extractor would keep them, which I ended up with and it did quite well.

Photo 3 shows after the tubing expansion procedure and me following up with the high speed wire wheel, I'm happy with the results.

I "COULD" have used a tapered punch and hammer, but the results would have been most likely either a bent and mangled filter, or a swelling effect of the tubing which would likely not allow me to slide the quick release fitting over and seal properly.
