Baystar nylon tubing issue

Was installing a nylon tubing to a baystar helmpump when I screwed it up....The tube slipped out and game over, the pressure nut of brass is compressed, can't use it now. Think the nylon tube is 3/8.

Will not find original part on a Saturday but is it possible to use some plumbing/pneumatic pressure nuts as substitute? It looks slightly different tough. No idea what the thread is on the nut but guess its not metric?

I think,Teleflex use their own design of olive, threads are normally NPT.

I doubt you'll find anything suitable from any other source. I've had problems during previous installs with leaks etc, don't like that stuff much

OK, thanks. I think a standard 10mm olive is pretty much the same size, but doubt it will work well...a had a round this morning in half a dozen shops, no luck. Have to wait for Monday.

Can sea why You don't like the nylon tubes, think need to make and upgrade on those also.

The nylon tubing is crap. You can get baystar with the proper hoses as opposed to the nylon tube.

The nylon tubing is really crap if You have a narrow transom well. In the end did used a standard 10mm brass olive and the nut meant for a 10 copper pipe... all temporarily but still it worked, no leaks. Will swap back to original parts asap.

You can buy the Teleflex hoses pre made to various lengths, properly crimped. I wouldn't use the boat above planing speed until it's sorted properly unless I really had to

You are totally correct. I did some testing only, must admit little to fast, but all within a mile from the berth in good weather. When i went for a new original olive(supplied together with the nut, less than 2 euros) they told me that they don't sell the nylon tubing at all for outboard use, only inboard. I did buy mine kit directly from the states...

Good tubing, made to any specific length, properly crimped, ready for seastar pro pressure was about 12 euros per/m so worth that anytime compared to the cheap baystar nylon tubes.
