    This is a photo I took of the cover separated from the dense braid

    I'll give it some thought Larry. Problem is always the exchange. $212 becomes $275 here even before the shipping. I may put together an order with some other things you carry. I am interested in your reduce all and other color removing agents. Money's always tight this time of year but i'll see what I can do.

    Larry also let me demo this hose and up to now it has been good, but I only have 25 or so hours on the hose so I am not ready to make the final determination on the hose overall.

    I wonder if Goodyear can make a solution line with a clear tube or atleast white rubber so that when it does burst, it wont seem as bad.

    If the quality of Goodyear's hoses stays the same as their tires:cry:, then they won't update their hose

    I replaced a line, on my old tm, from my heat exchanger to the regulator with a Teflon coated line because the old line would spit black, from getting toooo hot, back into my fresh tank. Only problem with the Teflon coated, according to the guy, is it was not flexible enough to use as a solution line and it was expensive.

    Today, several customers have had wire-braid rubber hoses spewing out a lot of black water from freeze damage from the cold weather.

    Visible Internal damage to the hoses from freezing.

    Mikey;

    Parflex 1035HT is ~8% higher than the new Blue Thermoplastic hose.

    Took a picture of this import hose to show another flow restriction hazard.

    Notice the size of the crimp opening (only about 50% of normal size)

    I've seen this on many import hoses:

    The mystery blue hose that came with my AT was a bleeder, they took it back and paid for Parflex, in blue.

    Larry, when the hoses need re-crimped, is the normal hose crimping method able to be done on these types of hoses?

    Sure, this hose can be crimped with Parker crimps for 1035,

    Synflex 3903 Hose crimps, or other crimps for 100R7 thermoplastic hose.

    I have no clue what those numbers are. Will my hose shop use those numbers or do I need to buy the crimps from you to take to them?

    Yes.

    I’ll reword it so you understand Larry’s answer. ...... The 2” ball will fit into the tongue of the 2” trailer hitch.
