The "chrome" dual feed lines are usually just chrome(or something) plated copper. I'm guessing that if you could remove the plating from the flared end, the softer copper would conform easier to any irregularities and seal.
In fact, I bought a Z/28 repro fule line kit for my FB385 (fits perfectly with a Holley 650 DP, FYI). The lines that run to the carb from the Y-Block were made of steel, and it was so hard that I had to crank them down as hard as I could to get them to seal. When I'd remove them, it would round off the nut, which made them worthless. I made my own replacements out of 5/16" copper tubing, and they work great - just a reasonable amount of force and they seal.
