Four Automotive Hose Tips

Hose and fitting installation tips for you to consider:

  1. Do not over-tighten. This is the most common way of destroying aluminium fittings. It can make fittings prone to leaks. After putting together clean with solvent to remove debris and shavings.
  2. Be sure to clean up ragged edges on the end of braided hoses after cutting to ensure that the seal is leak free. Also wrap ends with electrical tape.
  3. Severe vacuum applications such as dry sump oiling systems require internal support coil.
  4. Abrasion is one of biggest causes of hose failure. No matter what style of hose you’re using, avoid sources of heat touching and contact with different components.
