1. Wrap hose tightly with tape at cutting point. Using a fine tooth hacksaw, cable cutters or radiac wheel, cut the hose in the middle of the tape. Remove tape after cutting before careful not to fray the braid.

2. Slip hose into socket to the depth indicated by the hose insertion mark on the outside of the socket. This should be just short of the back of the threads. VERY IMPORTANT - Mark hose with tape or suitable marking device at rear of socket. This mark will later indicate to you if the hose has pushed out of the socket during assembly.

3. Using an anti-seize lubricant, liberally lubricate inside of hose and threads on the nipple. Holding nipple horizontally in a vise equipped with soft aluminum jaws, push socket end carefully with hose nipple with a turning motion and engage nipple threads into those of the socket. Continue tightening by hand as far as possible to make sure that the threads are properly mated and no cross threading has occurred.

4. Using an aluminum fitting wrench, finish tightening assembly. When properly assembled a small gap of .030" or less should exist between the socket and shoulder of nipple. NOTE: Check marks on hose in step 2 for any evidence of push out. Hose assembly must be cleaned and tested to twice the operating pressure.
