    Aeroquip 303 hose is guaranteed for 8 years but recommended to be replaced every 5 years. Wouldn't it be wiser to adapt fittings to the ends of the original steel lines, AN nuts and ferrules? Just a Minor Alteration.

    I don't dip the ends. If I have a fire and it burns through the ends of the fire sleeve I am already in deep doodoo.

    As an alternative you can get your links and have Teflon hoses made, lifetime. I have had Stratoflex/Aeroquip last 20 plus years. I always check the flexibility at annual.

    You can use the hi temp red RTV from the auto stores to seal the end of your firesleeve. The dip has gotten really expensive and the tube of Red RTV accomplishes the same thing.
