Default A shameless plug for Tom Swearingen...

...who posts on here regularly. His business is making hoses for racecars and airplanes, plus they're pressure tested to 3,000 psi. He made all new fuel and oil lines for my -10 that's undergoing condition inspection, because Ray didn't like the older ones...an airplane had force landed near here after a similar fitting broke.

These lines are Teflon, stainless steel braided, with stainless fittings and firesleeved.

The best part...$389 firewall forward, including two sending unit lines, oil and fuel pressure.

Tom is on here as TS Flitelines and has his shop in Beaufort, S.C.

Tom is kinda sorta one of us...wannabe RV builder.

Best,

Default Negative...

We met Tom at the Race-to-Ridgeland this past Spring. He has a hose-making business in Beaufort, S.C.....different Swearingen.

Best,

No, Ed Swearingen isn't my uncle---gee that would have been nice! Last names spelled different, but sounds the same.

In that case, are you related to Al Swearengen from the show "Deadwood"?
