assembling stainless steel braided lines with fittings
I read a few how to on putting the fittings on the ends of stainless braided lines with the anodized fittings. Does anyone have any tips they can offer about how tight to tighten the blue onto the red part of the fitting. I'm using Russel fittings. I cut my line with a dremel tool really slowly and carefully to not have any steel burrs. I can get it to snugly fit inside the red end fitting and used tape where I cut so the tape helps stop fraying. How far do you put the hose into the red fitting before you thread on the other half of the fitting? Does anyone recommend teflon tape or anything thing else? Or is this just something you put in a vice and torque down as much as you can? A little bit of direction would help me out as these are for my oil filter remote kit so these are really important.
