    I have a lot of these types of fittings leaking and I noticed that the actual hose isn’t damaged at all (unless microscopically). For the rest of them I’m simply going to try and clamp the OEM fittings tightly to see if that solves the problem. My clamps don’t come till Nov 4th though and I think it’ll take a long time to see if just by clamping them will solve the leak problem.

    I always thought about using clamps on the crimp connection if mine ever develop a leak. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

    These clamps seem like they’ll do the trick ...

    I don't like no barb on tube, my reference would be a JIC fitting like this or AN. There a few compression sleeve stles that fit these hose ends.https://www.mcmaster.com/52305K23

    Looks like a good product and not nearly as costly as AN fittings was going to cost me!

    Well...I finished clamping up the hoses and cleaned it up slightly. I clamped up the OEM aluminum fittings as well to see if that stops the weeping. Will check on them periodically in the future to see how it’s working. Seems like it should work. 331BFB02-FB3D-4C8F-BD0F-3B69EE5F4ECE.jpeg

    And my new best friend...

    It’s a 3/8” drive with ratcheting action. The head also swivels around if you need it. Two LED lights at the end to shine some light also.
