Re: anything magical about hard line being SS from pum
Wow you got a lot of answers with little information to go on. First, I highly doubt it's stainless. On an '88, I'm guessing fuel injected. That means higher pressure than carburetor. I'd also guess that double flare means the nut is external thread. I'm also guessing being an '88, it's metric. I doubt you'll find anything at the hardware store. It's probably brake line. Make sure you take the old nut, I just went through this to find new fuel and brake lines for my Jeep. The fuel line was easy being metric, but the brake line was American fitting BL. There are a lot of different fittings, BL, BLB, BLJ, BLG, BLM are just a few of the ones I remember seeing in my quest. Some have treads to the end of the nut, some do not. They come in several sizes, the number after the nut code is the diameter in sixteenths of an inch, the next number is the length. My brake line was BL3-41, nut style BL, 3/16" dia, 41" length. Seems like I saw 3, 5, 7, and 9 for diameters.
