AN ALL-METAL FLEXIBLE TUBING.
THE matter of fuel and oil piping is always of interest to sports car owners, as the hammering of a fast car over indifferent surfaces is liable to have a detrimental effect on ordinary copper pipe.
A new example of flexible tubing is the ‘rite-flex, which is the only flexible line of all-metal construction. The construction is shown in the accompanying photograph of a sectioned piece. The absence of any gut,
rubber,or fabric, makes it reliable and extremely durable for use with any fuel, however powerful or unusual in composition.
Tite-flex is manufactured by the Gabriel Manufacturing Co., Ltd., of Columbia Avenue, Burnt Oak, Edgware, Middlesex.
