Default Anyone know where to get hydraulic lines made?

Ok so first off i know this should technically go in wanted or the boats section but i figure if i post here i'll get more hits hi

i recently blew the impeller on my boat and when the exhaust got hot it melted my trim lines that were touching the exhaust. the problem is i cant find anywhere that can make me new ones. i have tried romeo auto parts, weingartz, deckers, and line to line.

Does anybody kno where i can get a trim line asap, im trying to get on the water by tommorow afternoon

thanks,
Brandon

Call some of these places.

Zoom out to see more of them.


I've been to a bunch of them down there when I worked for Nelsons, but I dont know what places were account only or would do walk in work.

Lots of old-school auto parts. I know there's a sign at Glendale Auto supply in Lake Orion that says hydraulic hoses made daily...

Regular hydraulic places don't have the stuff, it has to be stainless for the water I beleive. We have more hydraulic hose ends then most, and we couldn't make it.

I'm gonna call those places in the morning... The problem I'm running into is finding somewhere with the right fittings... There's no way to take the old fittings off to re-use em?

If they are crimped on then no. Bring me the old line and I can tell you if I don't have it most hydraulic shops wont. You might have to look online for a oem hose premade.

Its rare but some places stock stainless. When I worked at Nelson Hydraulics in Burton, we had stainless in stock.

That is quite a drive for him though. And I'm not sure if they still have them or not.

The carquest in Perry did my power steering lines for my Jeep. I'm almost certain TSC in Howell does not do them.
