so find each end of the line and disconnect it from what ever its mounted too... Look on the web for a industrial hose and fitting location... wonder down there and they will make you an industrial hose that is the same length with the same fittings.... and than you'll have to cycle it a few times to bleed out the line...

My hydraulic system uses AFT from the auto parts store instead of hydraulic fluid... the ATF is RED and is easier to see when it leaks on the ground...

I've replaced several... you might also buy some cheep heater hose of the appropriate size... where I had the plastic hydraulic lines run across a metal surface I've cut a piece of heater hose... what length looks right... and than slit it with a box knife... and than slip it over the hose and against where the existing hose is rubbing.... to prevent this from happening again...

BTW you'll notice that the industrial hose will be 4 times the quality of the plastic stuff..

I'll look when I get out of storage. Just planning ahead. Some place I look said HWH had some problems and still might send out some lines... can't hurt.

Thanx in advance for replying.
Depending on the type of hose you have , the fittings are different. Hydraulic hoses are normally 3 parts . An inner liner or hose covered by a nylon or wire braid , then an outer cover usually plastic or rubber.
A compression fitting will not work.
Your best bet is to remove the leaking fitting , then cut the hose a couple of inches from the fitting and take it to a hydraulic shop and get the proper fitting that you can install yourself.

I has a HWH Hydraulic line that the fitting failed. I took it to a Hydraulic Repair shop figuring they could cut the bad fitting off and install a new one. They were not able to repair it because the hose had ballooned and it was in between two sizes. They built a new hose.

The one that rubbed through looked to be plastic/nylon all the way through, no braided part?
