Phil that looks good ,wish I seen this before I ordered the replacement lines. Are the fittings from the new lines not that good .Years ago I went to a hydraulic shop and they made up some lines that are still on the truck I think they are push on type .I haven’t had a problem with them but that was in 1988 so that is why I decided to get the new lines .

No, but I used hard lines to re-route the filter out and through the now unused fuel pump hole so I could use a spin-on filter. I can always add the old bypass filter if needed.

The hoses and fittings came from Classic Parts and the fittings were not machined correctly, so they would not seal no matter what I did. Cheap overseas manufactured parts.

I would hope that lines made up by your local hydraulic shop would still be good, even today, as they would go out of business if they sold leaky hoses.
