What im learning is i need to replace the fuel lines....or the ends and use new compression fitting and only 1/2 turn past hand tight.

The compression fitting can be removed from the fuel line with a file, a hack saw or a Dremmel tool with a cut off blade. I prefer the Dremmel tool. You just need to go slow and avoid cutting into the fuel line. That fitting is simply pressed onto the fuel line from the force of the nut behind it.
over the years there has been a discussion of how the new compression fittings differ from the originals. For myself I have been able to remove and replace the fittings and get them to seal again.
