Can anyone tell me the secret of how to cut a braided hose in a way the braid does not then 'mushroom' off the inner hose and then stop the retaining nut passing over it ? They are aeroquip hoses.
I used a Dremel and cut off wheel. As long as I didn't let the cut become too hot, it left a very clean edge. I was able to pull the tape after the hose (wire ends) was seated inside the lip of the fitting. Vise with adapter, lubricant,Kieth,
LEAVE the tape on, and assemble with a mandrel tool from Aeroquip.
