What's the trick to getting that 3-hole grommet in there in under 5 minutes? Every time I do it it's a 30 min battle and it always leaks

I always coat the grommet with dielectric grease, I suppose any lite grease would work, before installing. I’ve also made a rounded wooden dowel, so I don’t cut it, to help force it in place.

I use silicon spray and put the grommet in first, then poke the tubes through

I use dawn dish liquid soap. It will dry later.

And it not as dreaded as one of the Homelite grommets I dealt with.

Don't maybe my was just works for me.

It sorta the competitor shop owner was complaining about how it was to install fuel lines. Then Had him try in my shop and seen he was pushing instead of pulling the lines. I showed how I did it and he went away a happy camper.
