I installed some quick release fuel lines on my monster, and they aren't allowing fuel to pass. I assume they aren't engaging properly. Anyone have any tips/tricks that can help me out?

Which quick disconnects did you use?

You could have a problem with an o ring blocking flow

I have some O ring #s from the Aerostitch qds

Not sure exactly what brand... they say "CPC" on the side.

They have this deal that compresses to allow flow on one end, and the other end does the compressing... but it won't compress enough to allow flow. It works if I stick an allen wrench up in it to compress it a little more, but that's it.

CPCs are good. I'm using them with no trouble. Why don't you try lubing the rings with silicone?

CPC is the only maker I know of.

They have sets with the valve in one half, and sets with a valve in both halves.

Perhaps they're a mixed set...did they come straight out of a package?

Pics of the offending parts would help.

They have to slide together far enough to depress the plunger that then lets the collar 'click' into position.

i'll post some pics tonight... they are clicking into place, and the only way for me to get any fuel through the valve is to depress the plunger beyond the face of the valve (farther than the receiving end could depress it under any circumstances.
