2 hours of prep and 5 minutes of crimping I now have a new fitting in place.
Fluid leakage was minimal maybe a tablespoon.
Verified that fitting was indeed JIC 37 and not SAE 45.
Keeping the inside of the hose clean was a top priority. So lot of extra work to make sure none of the cutting debris made it inside.
Put an extra fitting on gear box with end taped up.
Taped up old fitting and added many layers to protect the good hose while I cut old fitting off. Some may ask why not just cut the hose and be done. Doing this does not allow you to keep the cut debris from going in the hose. And no way to clean it like a new hose.
Cut the crimp ferrule off so hose can be slid off.
And then a piece of 3/8 rod placed inside hose so end can be trimmed.
Crimper sitting upside down on a 5 gallon bucket was perfect height.
30 seconds later a new fitting. Making sure it was turned correctly with a line that was put on hose while old fitting was still in place.
And crimp was measured in multiple places verifying that it was correct diameter.
Now just hook it up and clean up the mess.
