Salvage company cut the fuel lines to wings during recovery... need these two fuel lines (2013 PA28-180 parts catalog p/n):

Line Assy - Fuel, Lt Wing 62308-000
Line Assy - Fuel, Rt Wing 67700-039

The left one is a short, straight line with 90 deg elbow, the right is longer, crosses across fuselage under the rear seat and has 90 deg bend. These two lines connect up to the lines going to fuel selector valve.

Thanks in advance.

An A&P can make those for you (if they have the tube flaring tools).

Correct, we are looking at that alternative. Need to get the specs on the Al tubing; it's 1/2" OD. The connections use ferrules (460-464 or 6T12D)/nuts (477-670 or 6B12D) but flaring may still be required... haven't researched that yet. Thanks.

The ends of the tubes will need to be flared, the ferrules/B-nuts go on before you flare the tube. All the info you need for the type of materials and how to do it is in AC43.13-1b, your A&P should know all of this.

If you end up wanting to replace the hoses (Piper SB1006 recommends 8 years), my AP made up new ones for my 1968 PA28-180. It was Aeroquip 303 hose, 11” length with straight 491 fittings. You can also use Parker Stratoflex 111 hose. All are available at Spruce.

These are hard lines between the wing and the fuselage, not the hoses in the engine compartment.

Shawrco, a thought:

have you tried sourcing the lines from one of the aircraft salvage yards like Wentworth or Texas Air Salvage?
