Guy at the parts house is telling me that heater hose will work as return line..I figure the hydro oil would break it down?

I've got a 1/2" fuel line that has been in place to carry a return for 15 years. It does not see any pressure but, if the cylinder leaks it may see pressure and burst. I hope to replace it in the spring. Good Luck, Rick

Pressure hoses have wire strands in them, to hold pressures.  Heat hose has cloth in it, Maybe, so would not be my choice. BUT, maybe return line hose a softer one might work, but I would prefer squeezed on fittings and threaded connectors, not slip over for most of my items.

It doesn't  take any type connection..just hose clamps..#6-8-13-17 in this diagram(in red)  31784g9.jpg

Heater hose doesn't do well with oils.  It will swell & soften.  You need hose for fuel or oil.

I buy the purpose made return hose. I don't want to  be 20 miles from home and have problems.
