Default Question about forward end of fuel line F-12127A in Section 27iS page 7

Is anyone else having trouble aligning the tube with the bypass fitting assembly? I realized after cutting and flaring that I did not bend the tubing forward of the bulkhead in order to align it squarely with the bypass fitting

Here's a picture that (hopefully) illustrates the issue. I haven't tried posting a picture prior so apologies if this doesn't work. I can get the nut to reach its mating portion of the bypass fitting but it just doesn't want to thread. I wasn't very aggressive with the amount of force I applied - looking for advice on whether this should go together or if I need to redo this line.



Here's the link to the picture if the image embed isn't working: https://photos.app.goo.gl/EpGh7PEXFyFF8Xkd7

Default elbow grease

I would try a little elbow grease to get it to align correctly. It's okay to slightly put a bent here, see my photo for alignment.

That worked like a charm. Thanks for the suggestion!
