The hose I have (that curly orange plastic stuff) has a few cracks developing and needs replacing. Is it possible to buy that type of hose by the metre and re-use the existing fittings? Who sells that stuff?
Thanks in advance.

Gday
You should be able to use a "Suzi coil" purchased from Repco or Bursons and all truck parts dealers.

Thanks Muzbry - first time I've heard of Suzi coil. Never too old to learn something!

Those Suzi coils are really strong, Muz. In a dither one night and forgot to unhook them............must have stretched 30' before they broke. :-)

Rather have something like Derek's supplying for tyre use though.

We have a 8m rubber hose, you can change the fittings over.

Derek - what's the outside diameter? I need it fit into a particular space, thus the question. If it's a fair bit larger than the original it will not fit.

10mm OD and 5mm ID. The hose can be coiled by hand to what ever you want down to say 120mm if needed.

Sorry Derek
I hadn't thought of recommending you. I don't like the coily hoses and so must get rid of the one i have.

I replaced my orange/yellowy hose with Derek's hose - good gear.

Krooznalong,

I don't recall any ARB compressor that has curly hose.

Or,

Are you after a replacement ARB branded, compressor hose?

Lots of places sell high pressure hose by the metre and ARB sell their orange compressor hose as a complete unit.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

It's definitely an ARB compressor (portable - but I've mounted it in rear of the Cruiser) and it definitely has what I call "curly" hose - it's horrible stuff that tends to tangle and is a PITA to stretch out around the back to try to reach the front wheels.
So I don't really want the same stuff again. Was after something I can buy in the length I want and just take the current fittings off and transfer them to the new hose.

Krooznalong,

It is interesting that we have the same compressor, with the straight orange high pressure line. I wonder if ARB changed from the curly to the straight line??

Anyone who sells compressors will have the line you need and as indicated before, ARB sell the hose and fittings complete.

Hope you get is sorted soon.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

I think what he means as "curly" is in fact the orange hose that normally gets wound in a circle, thus making it look curly......and needs to be "uncurled" to go straight ..

Just like a garden hose, an air hose will need uncurling to go straight..

I call it "curly" because that's the natural state it wants to be in. No way would it lie straight unless it's stretched out.

It is interesting to do an image search of ARB compressors.
One does have the same type of "curled" hose that cheap compressor makers favour.
Having limited space would tend to steer towards the thinner tube stock.

Let us know what you end up doing.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
I ended up getting some reinforced clear hose from Masters at $1.60 per meter and put the fittings from the buggered hose onto the new stuff. Problem solvered.

I think you'll find that ARB have a different style of chuck than others, so an ordinary hose fitting won't connect to an ARB compressor..
