    I'm trying to replace the fuel lilne on my Robins Subaru EHO 35 and am having a big problem trying to get the black rubber grommet inserted. I don't want to force it and damage the thing. Any suggestions or experience with this out there?:ack2:

    Great humor and I was so absorbed by the difficulty of the thing that it all went right over my head. Groan.

    I finally took the tank down to my auto mechanic and he got the tank grommet in place for me. It took him about 15 minutes of hard labor and eventually got it bent enough to snap into place. The thing is NOT malleable. He graciously did not charge me.

    Thanks for the replies and yes, I should have posted a pic.
