That stainless steel tube is more important that that red handle. You don't want a hose, unless you get the black hose with brass fittings. Call PMF and see what they've got. Anything else, and you'll be replacing the hose every year because of rust on the hose crimps.

So if the handle won't fit, return it.

Its plastic..it would get compromised
if you were bending it outward...I would totally agree with you but you not...you putting a small channel on the inside and when you bolt it on the pressure is going inward towards the grove...so you have compromised nothing......

Sound like you will have to switch to a hose if the tube won't work like you want.

Measure how long the tube is and have your disty make one. Shouldn't be a lot of $$.

It's about twice as much as having a local shop make it. And you get it in minutes.
Like Newman I have all my hoses made by the local shop.
