Can anyone comment on bending the metal fuel lines (from CIS to engine)
Im using an old fuel line as part of my DIY pressure tester, but I can't leave it in because it sticks straight up and can't close the hood. If I could put a 90* bend in it I could make it fit.

There are cheap little brake line bending tools available as some auto parts stores and probably on-line.

I bent all mine by hand, a LOT of em..
See them in the link in my signature..

Pretty easy, just don’t try to make too tight of radius bends so you don’t kink them..
Make longer bends a little at a time..
Practice on a piece you don’t need to use?
I never kinked a single one actually, so in my opinion they don’t kink very easily at all..

Bending tool is cheap and does a great job.

I was able to bend it by hand gently, mostly right at the CIS meter as it was one of the injector lines that was straight.
heres a pic of how I installed the gauge permanently.

It’s likely you will get a very weird warmup when your WUR is not bolted to the intake to keep it “warm”..

Might start rich, lean out, then drift back rich..
