    Do not turn this into an argument. You know full well what the point is. "Just like Kleenex" Aeroquip makes ALL KINDS of different hoses & fittings. So does everybody else. In a previous life, part of my job was making hoses. I've literally sold hundreds, if not thousands of (mostly hydraulic) hoses. Our main line back then was Weatherhead, but we carried some Aeroquip stuff because the local loggers had it on their trucks. These were a specific type of hoses & fittings and are certainly NOT universal.

    Some product lines/types in some brands have a crossover into other brands. This is not always the case. When you get into this stuff of liability, EFI pressure level, fuel, brakes, and NHRA (and other) approval, my advice is "follow manufacturer's specifications" to the letter.

    Aeroquip is Aeroquip. The company owned by Eaton.
    Since when is Aeroquip a universal term like Kleenex?
    Are there fittings out there that are re branded?

    You'll have to call Earl's Performance Plumbing, but I agree with 440roadrunner, the answer is probably "no".

    Hello. We have an Aeroquip crimping tool, and we're wondering if Earl's crimp on fittings will work with the dies we have?
