Stainless Braided Hose
  • Greatly outlasts ordinary hose
  • Precise fit - no leakage
  • Protective braid greatly reduces possibility of breakdown through chafing
  • Stainless reflective weave helps prevent vapourisation problems on fuel line and boiling issues when used for brake and water lines.
  • High performance 304 grade stainless - the best available
  • Ethanol compatible
  • Nitrided rubber internal section (with reinforcement stranding, unlike some cheap imported versions on the market) on all sizes except 1/8" which is nylon reinforced as suitable for high pressure brake & clutch line.

Available in a range of size of internal diameter:

  • 1/8" (3.2mm) is used for brake and clutch line. Swaged fittings must be used in this high pressure application. Although somewhat over-engineered for the purpose we have also seen this hose used for washers, dizzy vacuum hose and other micro bore applications to good effect.
  • 1/4" (6mm) or 5/16" (8mm) is used for most classic car fuel lines
  • 3/8" (10mm) is used on most classic Jaguars & the vast majority of American classics
  • 1/2" (12mm) is usually employed for water and oil line hose
  • Use with MagnaClamps or Rubber End Caps, or swaged fittings (swaged fittings must be used for brake line)

Sold per metre - eg if 10 are ordered you will receive a continuous length of 10m; maximum continuous length 30m
