Couplemate recommends the use of a stainless braided SAE hydraulic hose. Bundy tube or steel tube can become damaged and, as a result, restricts the flow of brake fluid.

The braided hose is flexible and poly-coated for long life. Copper tube olive ends with short brass locking nuts.

Equipment like Alko and Trojan caliper requires an olive adaptor nut with a copper washer to properly seal hydraulic connections.

Finally, a stainless braided hydraulic hose is a good investment to use to connect your Hydrastar to the hydraulic calipers.
