Pre-assembled AN lines vendor?

This seems like the right forum... we'll see.

Anyone know a vendor that will pre-build AN lines for you?

In other words, you'd tell them you want X fitting on one end, and X fitting on the other, with X amount of hose in between.... and they'll send you the line, built and pressure tested.

If you have a Parker Hose local I'd start there though.

The only places I've seen that do work similar to that are engineering companies that use the higher grade fittings. I had two lines made to replace the stock oil lines from the block and using AN fittings on the ends; it wasn't cheap. I believe I paid a little over $100 for 2 lines.

To tag along what Damon said; what I did was looked up a local distributor for Parker fittings through their website:

http://www.parker.com/

The local company I found created the lines and crimped the fittings.

I'm in the process of getting the equipment to do it myself.

I will be using earls ultra flex hose and fittings. (probably one of the best/lightest right now)

It's pretty expensive stuff..

Jeez - you can buy the Russell hose and fittings from most performance minded parts houses. I made all of the hoses for both my oil and fuel system recently, and it's really not that hard with minimal tools. It does help to have a cutoff wheel on a die grinder to cut them to length, but the rest is pretty straightforward. A tip, always put a couple of wraps of masking tape over the area to be cut to keep the braided steel from fraying and making it hard to assemble the ends!

Theres much better quality hose available then russell..
Also the better quality hose ends are crimp only so you'll need special crimping machines to do it.

BTW to cut my hose i use a hose cutter so there's no need to tape up the hose and use a cutoff wheel. Hose cutter works much faster and easier.

Usually, if you buy the parts from a local speed shop, they will assemble it for you for a nominal fee.

If you are in the Portland Oregon area, Oil Filter service will charge you $8.00 to build a hose from their parts.

You can probably even order it and have it shipped if you know what you need.

BTW, if you want the best available then you'll want to check XRP. Much better then earls or pretty much anything else out there.
But then again parker hydrolic hose will do the job just fine for a lot less.

Something to consider- at a race recently a friend blew out a braided oil line and we had to go scouting for a replacement to make the race. Went into a NAPA and they made up some custom hydraulic lines that were plenty big enough, had the proper fittings, and had a real tough fabric-type covering wrapped around them. Not having braided stainless would be great in some cases. With nothing more than movement and vibration a braided hose will but through a frame rail like a hacksaw! Seems the price was also pretty dang reasonable in comparison.

A couple of other sources that may be less expensive since they are not auto related would be to check for companies that sell or repair farm and tractor equipment. They use a lot of hydraulic hoses. Also check for speciality hose suppliers around any chemical and/or refinery plants in your area. I work for a chemical company. We have a local supplier that can make just about any kind of hose we want.
