  • For Sale Aeroquip 491 Reusable Hose Ends

    I replaced the hoses on our new airplane and the old ones have reusable ends. As of now, they are still complete hoses but I can chop them off with the grinding wheel so that they can ship easier. I have three -8 hoses with aluminum ends, four -6 hoses with steel ends, four -4 hoses with steel ends, and one -3 hose with steel ends. Several of the hoses have fire sleeves if you're inclined to reuse those. New at ACS these total $492, and I'm asking $100 for the whole lot, or if you'd like to divide them up, figure 1/4 the new ACS price per fitting.

      lol, I am using only SS/AL tubing. No hoses, With all the chaos in supply chains the price is practically the same now.

      The places where most folks typically still need flexible hoses include the brake lines at the top of the gear leg, the brake lines that go to and from the master cylinders, the fuel line from the firewall to the carb (in this case, there was also a pump) and the oil/fuel pressure sensor lines. I try to keep the flexible hoses to a minimum for weight and durability.

      I bought my braided flexible brake lines from Summit Racing. US company but they do ship from within Canada. I put the reservoirs right on the master cylinders, used braided flexible line interconnects between pedals and the parking brake, then braided flexible lines to the top of the gear legs. I think it totaled around $100 US.

        That is a smoking deal on those. I highly recommend reusable hose ends, as I ended up "reusing" them at least once each trying to get everything on the fire wall to play together well. I thought I would screw it up the first time, and was correct.
