Flexible hydraulic rubber hose connectors with olive inserts
Flexible hydraulic rubber hose connectors use a 3/8″ UNF thread. Rubber hose connectors are used to join the hydraulic line to hydraulic brake components.
Alternatively, rubber hose connectors are used to join the hydraulic line to hydraulic brake components and master cylinders.
Flexible connectors are approximately 40cm long.
If the disc brakes or hydraulic cylinder leaking then it is likely you have screwed the 3/8 inch nut on your hydraulic lines directly into a component that requires a nut adaptor to complete the termination.
Teflon tape is recommended to be used for all fittings.
Disc brakes are steel and are coated in dacroment or gal. Alternatively, they can be stainless.
Finally, brass is not a suitable metal to fix into other non-brass metal surfaces. As a result, Teflon tape is recommended.
