Replacing a line fuel

I will be replacing a line fuel on my 380 sl.

Since the original line from the dealer has the fitting bigger than the one in my car, I took them to a hydraulic shop repair and they put the old fittings into the new line.

My questions, is this o.k. (safe) will not leak, how much pressure a line fuel takes?

Any help will be apprecieted.

Thank you

I know we are talking different models here, but I replaced a leaky fule line on my W124 a few months ago.

My only real preparation was to depressurize the system...translation: open the gas cap and let the "woosh" occur.

I also clamped down the hose leading from the tank with a pair of vice grips to be sure. I only lost a few ounces of fuel during the installation.
