1960 convertible hydraulic hoses

Post by jdrax » Wed Jul 26, 2017 7:45 pm

For those who have replaced the hoses on their top........ where did you get your hose set from and were all the ends and fittings pointing in the correct direction to fit into the components. I have installed numerous sets in different years and have had problems with every set where the fittings point in totally wrong direction so I have to twist the hose to get them to connect. This makes for a lousy installation.
So, who has had a perfect fit and where did you get them from?

I've used Hydorelectric and never had a problem. The lower deck piston "T"s have a short leg so the fitting does not contact the body, this was a recent change.
