Whaddya guys use when you are assembling the hose ends on to the AN Type Hose?


Some of the new ones I have been working with are a real bear to the point that they are defoeming my AN wrench..

Currently Working the -10 size / Diameter... I am not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I $pent up for the priĀ¢er hose this time too... Maybe the Better hose just has a wee bit smaller I.D. and Larger O.D. which will cause the problems that I am having when trying to spin the hose ends on.

I have also used red grease.
A vise with aluminum jaw inserts helps
and throw away the an wrench when putting the hoses together.
Also always put a little lube on the threads even when putting the hose in place on the engine
the aluminum on aluminum threads can gull up easily.

I put the fitting in my vise using a leather glove as a cushion. And a little Vaseline on fitting.

I use Royal Purple synthetic engine assembly lube when I assemble rubber lined AN hoses. It works well and I already have it sitting around.

I hardly do it anymore as I've switched to the braided PTFE hose. It's far lighter and easier to work with when you use the thread-assemble fittings. But even better is when you use it with the crimped fittings which are more compact and can never, ever leak or come loose. XRP HP-79 is one such hose.

On my soapbox, XRP and Earl's are the only two companies left who make fittings in the USA (to say, the only non-Chinese country making fittings).
