Default Black Russell Pro Classic Nylon fuel line

Ok so im trying to get the fittings on this Russell Pro Classic black nylon hose. Unlike braided stainless the material wants to un-ravel .
Whats the trick to this stuff?... i tried taping the ends still no luck. There has to be a easier way.

Thanks
Keith

Are you talking about when you cut it, or when your installing the hose end?

When cutting it wrap electrical tape around it REALLY tight, I cut it with a PVC pipe cutter but I am sure a razor blade would also work. slowly unwrap the tape, spray some lube in the hose end and assemble.

I've never had any problems with it.
But I have only used aeroquip, earls, and jegs not russell :?

intresting your having trouble I have the aeroquip stuff, you dont even need to tape the ends, cut it with a pvc cutter or cable cutters and stick it together.

Make sure you blow them out. Maybe try a few wraps of masking tape and then cut it to help it.

Default hose

I wrap it with tape super tight...cut it looks nice and clean .. take the tape off and the nylon material ..sticks to the tape and un ravels.. then its a mushroom.
When i try to install into the fitting it just becomes again un-raveled. Ive done a ton of stainless braided line no problems.

i dont know..

Just leave the little bit of excess electric tape on the hose after you cut it, the fittings sleeve will cover it up, I've done this before with no problems.
