Installation/assembly error, or poor quality fittings?

Where did you order them from so one knows to avoid?

since they are summit hose ends, summit racing.

I have had decent luck with my summit ends, although the earls ones are a much better quality, followed by russell.

My buddy didn't have any problems with the Summit ones either... He has QUITE a few in his rig. Sure there are always bad apples in every tree every once in awhile...

Yeahi have a ton of them on my car. The only ones iv put pressure to are the fuel lines. None of the 90's leaked. Only two straights. Its a mfg defect. Its leaking at the swivel joint that is assembled by them

Parallax has a serial port I swear by - we do lots and lots of goofy hardware at my work, and we order them by the 20 pack.

No kidding. My GOD have I found this out the hard way. :-) More bracing. And don't think insan-o good metal will save you - it needs bracing.

swaped out the summit fitting for the earls and no more leaks. 240tomiata is coming over today to try and help me get the MS working. If this doesn't work I have to send it back to braineack and have him look it over.

i still need alot of tunning. when i try to rev it it falls on its face. and it was running pig rich. i ajusted the ve table a little to get the a/f up in the 12's it was in the 10's. i gotta set my timing still and correct some other issues. this was just a teaser. motor might have 5 min run time at this point.
