Connecting Salvage Yard High Pressure Fuel Lines?

I am hooking up the fuel pump and filter for the MPI 4.0 head conversion and wanting to avoid the expense of new fuel lines. Sunday, in a visit to the yard I found a number of cars, even newer Cherokees and Grands with fuel lines.. some of which appear to be stainless. It may be that they are long enough for the CJ.
I am familar with general pipe fittings, but not for high pressure fittings. What is the best method to connect two high pressure lines together where I have cut off both ends? Particular issues with stainless?
Thanks, WES

Re: Connecting Salvage Yard High Pressure Fuel Lines?

look for Swagelok fittings or YOR-LOK fittings. either way, i'd get Stainless steel and put anti-sieze on all the threads.

www.McMaster.com has the YOR-LOK stuff, and its fairly reasonable. matt
