Enlarging the bore of the fuel weight sensor tube to allow an easier fit onto the pressure port of the sensor. I heated a 6-inch nail with the hot-air gun, lubricated it with wax, pushed it into the tube and allowed it to cool. This relieved the bore of the tube just enough to admit the sensor port without excessive force.

A failed attempt to attach the tubing to the pressure port of the fuel weight sensor. I had not slid the tube quite far enough onto the port, and when I crimped the Eliza Tinsley clamp, it just pushed the tube off the port.
