Teflon Hose IVA

Hello!

Has anyone on here run teflon hose with stainless overbraid at IVA? If so, where did you get it from? What kind of markings did it have?

I usually use torques.co.uk but need to check if their hose is marked correctly.

Cheers!
Josh

Get them from Furore Products - lots of satisfied customers on here. Don't buy the self assembly stuff, just not worth it, inferior product, time & aggro assembling & IVA may require proof you've inserted the inner tube olives

You don't need any markings, tho' Furore can provide a letter from HEL (the manufacturer) if required confirming they conform to the correct SAE spec

Shameless plug? If you can build a car you can assemble a fuel hose.

Yes, a shameless plug (though not for myself) - however if you can find a better quality hose, made to your exact requirements, for a lower price you deserve a prize - price wise, particularly when you take P & P into account there is very little difference in price, however, on the one hand you have a PTFE lined hose with stainless steel braid covered with a PVC coating in almost any colour of your choice. The ends are swaged on, the hoses are guaranteed for life & because the ends are stainless you have no problems with unions rusting into calipers after a few years should you need to strip down.

On the other hand you have a similar hose, only it's not PVC covered so after a few hundred miles it's ingrained with brake dust & road dirt, will never be spotless again, the unions are made up in several parts, every join is the potential for a leak, not the best idea for a braking system, the braid is horrible to cut & work with & you will almost certainly cut yourself or have puncture wounds. The unions are mild steel, with nickel cadmium (I believe) coating, given a few months/years in a damp environment, they WILL rust - they are obviously on show very clearly, particularly on the front calipers. Add to all the above that it will cost considerable time in assembling the hoses against them arriving thro' your letterbox ready to fit. There simply is no comparison between the 2 products

You will note I no longer make the hoses, nor run or control the business that sells them, however, these are the hoses I used to make a sold to many builders on here - there are many satisfied customers & my point remains that they are a vastly superior product at a very similar price, Oh! & I didn't mention that if you talk to Oli nicely he'll usually do a 5% discount for LCB

The braided hoses you make up by hand if done carefully are perfectly fine and accepted at IVA without markings.

I made mine by hand first time round, have since replaced with Furore hoses. Russ is right, they are much nicer quality for basically the same price and less effort.

There isnt any overbraided fuel hose that's correctly marked for IVA as far as I know. I also had a lot of problems with it rotting out on my Camaro even though it was supposedly unleaded and ethanol safe.

In the end i swapped it out to Goodrich push fit hose, still got the AN fittings i needed and it was marked up (not that I needed it on the Camaro as it didnt need IVA)

Interesting!

I use pushfit hoses at the moment and was tempted to swap over to brained for IVA as it is more durable.

I will be running flexi-line down the tunnel and don't fancy anything other than stainless over braid in areas I can't see.

I will be using teflon hose, not stainless over rubber- that is quite important.

From reading the IVA website it suggests proof that the hose is fuel safe is as good as markings?

For inaccessible areas like the tunnel, why not simply run the line in copper, joining to rubber at the ends where it's more accessible

This^ Do not cover fuel hose, you need to see it to check for splitting and rotting.

I have done this before and I am not a fan. My tunnel is very tight and the routing can get rather complex. Having a flexi-hose makes this far more achievable.

Yeah, sorry, my misunderstanding, thought the original post was about brake lines & didn't spot the word "fuel" in the OP's response!
