Re: [DML] Coil in Fuel Line to Prevent Collapse?

That mod has become a bit redundant with the new cheaper reproduction 
hoses that don't collapse. However I found an easier way of achiving the 
same result, having struggled to find an appropriate spring.

Get at least a 2' length of a studding (ie threaded rod) - over here I 
use M10 because we're metric but it's not important what thread :-) As 
long as it's slightly smaller than the ID of the hose.

Coil mig-wire tightly around the rod to approx 2'

Insert the hose over the rod, and allow the mig wire to spring out 
inside it. Remove rod leaving the perfect copper coated coil inside it.
