Thread: Super Stock hose & fittings questions.

  1. #1

    Default Super Stock hose & fittings questions.

    Is this suitable for EFI (60 PSI)? I would assume so with the 250 PSI rating, but just wanted to be sure.
    Since there doesn't seem to be a crimp tool for the sleeve (and it doesn't even come with the fitting), I assume it is purely cosmetic? Or did I just miss the crimp tool somewhere?
    One more thing, what is your feeling on heating the hose with a heat gun to install? I had a hard time getting over the last little step on the fitting to make the sleeve tight, unless I heated it a bit.

    Yes: https://www.holley.com/products/fuel...l_system_kits/ (Holley EFI Super Stock 20' Fuel System Kits)

    It's not a crimp sleeve, and it's optional: http://documents.holley.com/techlibr...e_assembly.pdf (Earl's Super Stock Hose Assembly Instructions)

    Use lubricating oil.
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Thanks Dan. So the sleeve is purely cosmetic in this case? What about these: https://www.holley.com/products/plum...arts/818406ERL. At what pressure range would you need these? Power steering lines? Transmission cooler lines?

    Then there's also this tool that states it's for "Super Stock" hose ends too: https://www.jegs.com/i/Earl's/361/D0...SABEgLy4vD_BwE. I was just confused. Thanks again.

    Yes, you can use hose clamps on Super Stock hose/ends.

    The Super Stock hose isn't for power steering use.
    Notice the Holley EFI Super Stock Fuel System Kits (post #2) include hose clamps.

    The sleeve does not have to be crimped.
    If willing to pay $745 for that Earl's D031ERL Crimping Tool, I'd consider higher quality Earl's hose/ends that don't require a crimping tool.
