As usual. Aeroquip does well
Excellent product and quality. Shipped quickly as well
The RIGHT part I needed for assembling the oil-pressure sensor hose, using Aeroquip-303 hose. Thanks, AC-S!
Seems to hold up well. Be sure to use a mandril when inserting the ferrels or else youll score the inner rubber tubing. Will definitely use again.
Good quality as expected Over priced as expected
Fittings were a snap to install on the associated 303 hose. Pleased with my order.
As others have noted, easy to install, especially if you first look at EAA video on how to. The mandrel for the size you want is a little expensive but very necessary. No can do without the correct size mandrel.
Great project part for student projects.
Easy to assemble.
This is a great item to use. Steel fitting and aluminum hose sleeve. I used a steel plug and a ratchet to thread the fitting into the hose. I also used oil to help with the threading into the hose. Once it has set for a few days it is almost impossible to un-thread the fitting. I did once and ripped the hose off the end that was in the vice and then I was able to reuse the fitting. Just the hose was now too short.

You will need to use the 300 series Stratoflex fittings for the Stratoflex 111 series hose. The 491 series fittings are for the 303 Aeroquip hose series.
