Technically, you need to use the Vise-Grips, too -- if you don't loosen
the flare nut before you tighten the inlet nut, it is likely the torque
of the fuel line vibration will loosen the inlet again. Retighten the
flare nut after you've tightened the inlet, putting a little torque on
the line in the 'hold it in' direction and they will stay tight.
All GM's from this eara have the same problem with the inlet
