Default HOSES/LINES, need referral

I had the oil pressure sensor line on the Onan/Kubota made at the local hose shop yesterday. I had to do it while the head is off the Kubota. It was a quick and unexpected $53 for an 18" line.






Does anyone have an internet based custom hose shop to recommend?

It was just a 3/8 line 18" long. Not sure about the connections, nothing fancy. Is the price ballpark, or am I still living on a 20 year old budget?

I think they ripped you. Phoenix has a ton of good hydraulic shops. Is that line steel braided or just a small hydraulic hose?

I just replaced 3 fuel lines on our 3208. All we're about 25-30", fuel hose, standard fittings.... about $28-32 per hose. Have 2 shops about a mile apart.... might be a competition thing.

I've paid too much for hoses more than one. I had the lines that run to the front brakes made, I was charged $36 each for those. Yes, those 16" long air lines that run to the front brakes, $72 for the pair!


There's got to be a better way to buy this stuff rather than going to the fabricator each time. Am I the only one taken to the cleaners...….

Have you checked with NAPA they make hoses and stock hoses like the front air hoses. That’s the one near me in Weatherford Tx.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll try them instead of the Parker store, Hose Advantage, or Hose Pros. They all seem to see me coming....

Air brake hoses can be had at any HD truck shop. Even some truck stops. No need for custom hoses. Even that generator hose might be a stock item at any hydraulic shop that sell cylinders, etc.
