Hose Pics

I have these pulled out of my '95 D90 NAS so I'm posting them for perspective and discussion. These are the 2 hoses I'm trying to have built at a heavy equipment shop in Boston.

Any Parker hose shop can build you what you need. I'm usually amazed how cheaply and how much better the end product is over stock.

Stephen in Florida made me a set for a very reasonable price. I know he had ordered a set of 10 and I took 2.
Worked perfectly.

Edit - Stephen's handle is SafariHP.

I had mine rebuilt in town at delta rubber for cheap. I was in a similar situation and I read that they were not 12x1.0 from some uk forums. I'm curious if yours work out.

Interesting. I grabbed a 12mm x 1.0 nut (among several I tried) and it fit the male end perfectly, so that is where I got the measurement. So I hope it is right.

I also just found a 12mm x 1.0 to 6 an adapter at a speed shop so I may go that route instead of the smaller 4 an hose. Not sure if it matters either way though.

Well that was a bust. Size and thread count are right but the internal diameter doesnt give enough depth for the pipe to fit in the nut. Gotta get back to researching.

Rats! That would have been sweet. I've seen lots of 12x1.0 adapters, I bet you'll find something that works. Glad you have the threads figured out.
I wonder if steel will have a thinner wall and maybe fit better?

3.Fedhill fix; make up your own hard lines using Kinifex (nickle copper alloy) lines. Way better than SS and can be done by almost any idiot. If I have to tell you how I know this you are one. While you are at it explore the world of brake fittings and realize that you can be Stainless free!
Cunifer, you mean right?

Ya I think the pressure is too high with the fuel injection to just clamp it.

fuel lines

Safari HP has them available on their website for $69/each.

I was trying to see if the local hydraulic shop could make me a pair, but he's a scientist about the whole thing and wants pressure and flow rates and blah blah blah.

I really wanted to go braided. The Safari ones don't have the corrugated plastic protection sleeve over them....I'm thinking I can re use the ones I have.

Will keep you posted.

You have a direct link for the SafariHP ones? I went to Defender > Fuel and Emissions and didn't see any.

Also my neighbor has a drill press, so I am going to try to drill out some 12x1.0 to 6an fittings that I picked up this weekend. I'll report back Monday on the status.

So make some custom stainless lines. It's not very hard.
