CAV offered an hydraulic nipple forming tool which worked on 6,8 and 10mm injector pipes.

Note that it is special thick-walled pipe, not regular fuel pipe.

I learned the hard way (expensive as well, but not to me thank heavens) many years ago that the pipe bore size is critical as well!

Chaps here is a picture, now I know how to do it, of the injector pipe, hopefully you will see why I originally thought it was silver soldered or brazed on, after a clean up its clearer.

I was in contact with a firm in Newcastle who will make them up, ball park figure 20 per pipe,

Unfortunalty, that was the only good nut and end, the pipes are in good condition its the nuts and ends that have suffered.

Are the ends not just the brass ends as used on fuel lines at carb and tank, 8mm or 5/16" size ?
