hydraulic steering fittings
got my new seastar system today to replace my faulty one, to be fair the new system looks a lot better and should stop seal failure in early life.
i decided to tidy up the install and cut the hose and i have new ends....here is the gig, they don't fit the ribcraft/seastar hose very well.
i have some genuine ultraflex hydraulic hose and it is over 1mm larger OD than whatever is on the RC, the ID is 5/16 on both. i'm not happy with the fit on the fittings i have as they work better with the larger OD hose, so i'm wondering has anyone ever had this and what was the answer?
i assume RC use genuine seastar systems, the ends on that were crimped, the new ones i got are the re-usable type.
this steering has been a PITA since i got it...my luck continues with it.
