Default Re-route the SS Fuel Line to Spider?

See picture. Working on my baffle installations.
You can see that if I install the CB-707D Aft Center Support Bracket that it interferes with the SS fuel line that runs to the spider.

Can I simply flip that Adel clamp 180 degrees and route the fuel line away from the bracket? This may require small bends in the SS line. Is it that easy to bend. What do you recommend?

Thanks!
Ryan

Flip the clamp and bend the line, it is very easy to bend especially when it’s new.

Default Another solution

Here’s what I did. Didn’t want to take a chance on kinking the fuel line. Always different solutions to the same problem.

Just make certain that possible vibration will not have the line touch or rub on the bracket.
Another Adel on the line, attached to the bracket maybe???
