Default RE: Fuel Barb Soldering Help Please!

You can get by without using a barb. A bit of solder on the eng of the tubing will do the trick. I used to put barbs on the fuel tubing until I figured out a bit solder will do just as well by itself.
When you get ready to solder make sure your 1/8 brass tube is 90° to the floor with your soldering end at the bottom. Apply flux, heat and then a bit of solder. it should flow around the end of the tubing forming a perfect little blob at the end.
