Now the the Ford 3400 runs
to make up hydraulic hoses without a crimping machine I used "field attach " or sometimes called" reusable "
The larger outer shell has left hand course thread that you install on the hose first , at work we have nice tools to hold the hose from turning but at home I clamped the hose in a vice just tight enough to keep it from turning once the outer shell is almost bottomed out you put the outer shell in the vice , lube the part that has the taper on it and screw it in until it bottoms on the shell .I didn't have the correct 37* jic fitting for the one valve , too small so I removed the ASE O-ring/jic fitting and used a 37* jic/male pipe , to use the jic in a O-ring , you need to make sure there is enough depth and use the correct ASE o-ring , they are a little different the the hardware store size , trust me you can put them on , usually just a little bigger in dia. but they will blow out lol .
Went through my hose pile and replaced ones what would work
Then came the steel line .
Removed the whole section , cleaned and ground a V , first pass with the mig to seal and a few more to build it up , sanded smooth , a little primer and it was ready to drive closer to the garage for a power washing .
Next will be to try putting air in those loaded rear tires .
