The primary adapter ring is separately machined at a 37° angle to assure a positive connecting surface.
The swivel mating nut is machined from 2024 aluminum and has a specially constructed thread gauge for leak-free connections.
All angles are aircraft tube bent, eliminating sharp changes in direction for optimum flow.
Enlarged flats on the socket provide an excellent non-slip gripping surface.
Aluminum 2017 Holding Pin secures the mating nut to the main seal body providing a full and unobstructed swivel.
The hex designed braze nipple provides a greater holding area for greater strength and easier assembly.
The taper design provides straight through connection with easy alignment upon assembly, eliminating loose pieces of rubber within the flow area.
How To Assemble Full Flow™ Hose Ends
STEP ONE: Measure hose to desired length. To minimize wire braid fraying, wrap the hose tightly with race or electrical tape at the point determined for cut. Using a vise, clamp the hose loosely and position the cut line at the edge of the vise, then cut through the tape. Best way to cut is with a hack saw with two blades opposing one another. Remove the tape prior to the next step.
STEP TWO: Unscrew the red socket of the hose end from the nipple. Hold the socket with a vise using soft jaws and insert the hose into the socket by turning it counter clockwise. The hose will stop at the bottoming step of the socket.
STEP THREE: Position the nipple assembly of the hose end in the vise using soft jaws. Apply assembly lube sparingly to the threads of the socket as well as to the nipple assembly.
STEP FOUR: Start the socket over the nipple by hand to insure correct alignment of threads and tighten as far as possible by hand. Finish tightening the socket with the correct AN wrench until it reaches the nipple hex or when there is no more than 1/16" gap between the nipple/socket assembly. Inspect the assembly and thoroughly wash it. Pressure test prior to use.
