Many of Hydratech's kits feature preterminated hose kits. Since there are many variables building a kit such as our FFR Roadster, Hydratech provides extra-long lines and several fitting options. If you've never assembled Teflon-lined, high-pressure, braided hoses, they're a little different from a standard, rubber-lined, braided hose. After cutting the hose to length, slip the female hose nut over the hose end. Insert the brass ferrule between the outer braid and the Teflon liner, and seat the Teflon into the ferrule with a tapered punch. Apply assembly lube to the fitting and thread the fitting and female nut together. The high-pressure hose from the power-steering pump goes to the high-pressure inlet of the assist unit.
