According to an Eberspacher dealer (on the boat show stand), a rubber fuel connection at the heater complies with BSS providing the following applies:-

1) Rubber connection is approved to/marked ISO7840

2) The copper tubing delivering fuel is bulbous at the end to prevent any possibility of it pulling back under the jubilee clip and out of the rubber joint.

If this information can be relied on, the problem then is how to make the bulbous end.
I've just bought a "tube flarer" that looks like it will do the trick (as long as I remove the sharp edge at the end of the copper pipe to prevent damage inside the rubber joint).

The only other course of action is to hacksaw off the bulbous end to the metal fuel inlet tube on the heater, in order to fit a metal joint.
It seems ridiculous to have to hack bits off to comply with BSS. (I'm sure that an Eberspacher dealer would not contemplate such an action).

Incidentally, Panks have been working on an Eberspacher in our marina, so it does look like they are happy to visit marine installations.

(Next visit to the marina will find me scrutinising the heater fuel connection on that boat!).

Steve, you could always solder an olive on the end (after clearing the line of diesel that is)
I have also seen a flaring tool that will make a little bulbous area like an olive about 1/8" from the end but I can't remember where so I'm a fat lot of use to you Smile

What size is the pipe?

If it's owt like brake pipe, you used to be able to get a tool to make your own, and that involved making a fater bit near the end of the pipe.

Course if it's not the same size this is no help at all.

I do try, some say I'm very trying. Wink

Thanks David/Bob,

I like the idea of soldering on an olive.

The pipe is 2mm inside diameter and about 4 mm outside diameter, so it's not far off brake pipe size.

Our Webasto is connected with rigid copper pipe using compression fittings. Passed the BSS without a comment.

Why bother with flexible pipe, as it still needs clamping to the boat in the same way as rigid pipe. The ISO rated fule line is much, much more expensive per length than copper also.

You're making you life needlessly difficult.

Hi Bounty,
You've misunderstood the point here.
We have copper pipe - The joint in question is about 5 cms in length (as pictured earlier in thread - DCP5494.jpg).

If you can borrow a hand held brake pipe flaring tool and use op 1 you will be able to gently form a bulge on the end of the pipe.
