    Which braided hose?

    Obviously speedflow is a given for fittings but is other brand hose ok? I need quite a bit of 12an and $100 a metre is double others. Anyone have any luck with another brand for oil transfer?

    I've used Aeroquip, Earls and XRP without issue, but AUD was a lot better back in those days.

    came from https://www.anplumbing.com/ from memory

      I have found earls braid is a sliiiiightly different size so if you use earls fittings with speedflow hose or vice-versa, they still work but are a massive cunt to get the hose onto the fittings (this was teflon braid iirc)

          I missed the bit about using speedflow fittings.

          you should view plumbing as a "system". the hose and fittings should be from the same manufacturer unless strict standards are in place that they are certified to meet. there are standards for the flare and threads, but the hose to fittings connection is not so clearly defined and in some ways proprietary between manufacturers. mixing and matching isn't worth the risk for fuel and oil.

          speedflow fittings = speedflow hose
          aeroquip fittings = aeroquip hose

            Ok. Thanks all. I thought this would be the case.

              If you're in Melbourne you could do a lot worse than making a trip to MSCN in Moorabbin.

                I do agree for rubber based hoses because they can be a lottery on the rubber formulation, there is Chinese hose that is great and there is Chinese hose that is designed for pumping water to a fountain yet gets sold for use as fuel line (aka Aeroflow fuel hose). That said, even name brand Gates hose is known for being shit at times depending on the batch and I've had Aeroquip pushlock hose start to push off Speedflow fittings so yeah.

                PTFE hose is all the same, there is no local manufacturer, its all Chinese, the sizes seem to vary tiny amounts factory to factory but its almost impossible to fuck up making the stuff.

                  Marcos answered the phone and answered stupid questions even though I didn't buy the (speedflow) from him, it was a weekend.

                  Next order went to him purely for being a good bloke. Would recommend.

                    Agreed.
                    Well said.

                      I really wish you could buy fuel hose that's made to the same spec as OEM stuff, it must be prohibitively expensive to produce compared to what every parts shop stocks but I can only assume car manufacturers dont mind the added cents per car to avoid having to deal with law suits from cars burning down from splitting fuel lines. You can work on a 30yr old Corolla and the fuel lines are still great, use some maccay fuel hose and after a few years its rock hard and has to be cut off barbs etc

                        Incorrect.. speedflow do not use any Chinese made hose.. speedflow ptfe hose is made in England. You will notice it has a black carbon liner not the normal white liner in the -6, -8 and -10 that the cheap hoses have..

                              I reckon you need to be looking for FKM (fluorocarbon) hoses, the elastomer has much better aging, chemical and swell resistance than a cheaper NBR (Nitrile) hose for fuel applications.

                              Same for coolant hose, you will be want EPDM.
