I saw the PTFE hoses, but didn't think it was worth the extra money....... I did note the fittings were different so I made sure to not select the fittings for PTFE when I was selecting fittings.HIGH TEMP PTFE AKA:TEFLON core hose and the core should be rigid, not soft, the soft crap is CHICOM. Each hose has a max radius built into it and the sellers should have "all" the specs and know if the hose is conductive or not.
The hose is generally external SS braid w/PTFE core and optioned for external braid in various materials...
Fittings are for PTFE ONLY swivel, reusable, forged and hydro formed in radius, once fitting is installed to hose a pressure test will verify if it will hold...takes all the guess work out of using them.
Are there brands of hoses you gravitate towards or places you shop specifically? I'm committed to solid lines for the ATF lines for this truck now, but I would like to know for future projects.
