Time to install the hose. I measured and cut the new hose leaving a little extra length. With hose the bend radius is important. If the bend is too tight and you crimp the hose it may prematurely fail. You want a little extra room to allow the hose to naturally make the 90 degree bend. But not so much that it will restrict the vibration movement of the hydraulic pump.
Here I remove the old hose.
New hose to the left old hose is to the right. It may seem that the new hose has a larger ID. Remember the old hose has aged and has lost part of it's shape. Do not worry... Please remember to put a litle brake fluid on the new hose so it easily slips on.
Here I install one end of the new hose.
Removal of the pump side os the hose is tricky. You want to be careful here since the black fitting is not tightly held in. I slit the old hose just enough to put a slit in the braid but not enough to go all the way through and cut the large end of the black plastic hose barb fitting.
Here is the opposite end of the old hose on the left vs the new hose on the right. The new hose is nice and thick and having a thick wall is what you want for vacuum service.
Here is the new hose installed.
Notice the slack. The hose goes a little away from the motor before going in to the motor. As noted above this will insure a long life.
All done in less than three minutes.
