Question On New A/C Hydraulic Hose Crimper With Pics
« on: July 15, 2020, 08:45:54 PM »
Hey Guys,

I just bought a new hydraulic A/C hose crimper and I wanted your opinion on the crimps.  They didn't end up as round as I thought they should be.  The tool is easy to use really no screwing it up but if there is a way I will find it.  I used the right number die in this case a #8.  Maybe they are fine I would just like an opinion before I crimp the rest.  Thanks

Thanks Dave

I've been messing with it a bit and it almost seems like the next number die works for the number hose before it.  For example I get a rounder crimp if I use a number 8 hose on a number 10 die?????

The point is not a rounder crimp, the point is a tight leak free crimp... Use the die that matches the fitting number....

If you have a vacum pump you could create an adapter and make sure the hose will hold a vacum. If not the next best thing would be to create an adaptor and put big blue bubble leak detector around the fittings and fill them with 20 PSI and check them for leaks. If they dont leak they are good.
