Used as an up-grade or to make a hose that's not available off the shelf for a conversion

Very easy to assemble requiring only basic tools.

If you need advice - just ask

If you're buying a quantity of individual fittings, the system will just keep adding the delivery cost up. In this situation, any extra payment over the actual cost will be refunded when your order is booked out. Alternatively, talk to us first and we'll put a bundle together for you. Note these are all -3 - we do have -4 - 7/16 unf fittings too.

Undo the fitting into the 3 component parts - fitting - nut - olive

To cut the hose - wrap 1 layer of masking tape then cut with a thin disc on an angle grinder - it's important that the hose is not crushed

Note in the previous picture that when cut, the braid opens up more on one side than the other - obviously work on the side that is smallest and thread both of the nuts onto the hose - take care to get them the right way round

With a small well worn screw driver (no sharp edges) part the braid from the Teflon hose - you will find one end is considerably less cooperative than the other

You need enough clearance to fit the olive - you will stab your self and get prickled by the braid the first time and possibly all the others too so be careful

Push the olive all the way in - you can see when it's in all the way up to the step - you will get a feel for this as you do more

Push the fitting into the hose - at this point you can feel the resistance of the hose so you can easily tell if the olive is on properly - pull the nut over the braid and screw it onto the fitting

Most of the fittings are 1/2" and the nuts 7/16" - if you only have metric spanners - you can get away with 13 and 11 mm

Always use the 2 spanner method - never hold one end in a vice - you will damage the fitting

This is how much these fittings should be tightened - you will get a feel for this as you do more - there should be a small gap - only a mill or so - about the same a spark plug

Some fittings like this are 7/16 on both sides - again, no vice action - always use spanners to avoid damage - again - do not do up all the way - this will allow a bit extra if you need to line up the end - do it up a bit by all means but never undo

On a banjo fitting - never touch the sealing faces with anything other than the copper washers on assembly - mark the faces and it will leak - simple as that
