Mel, make sure you use the correct aircraft fittings. The Auto fittings 
have a different flare angle and to use them will probably result in 
pulling the nose gear out again to clean up.
We are using Aeroquip hose (303???)as a replacement hose, purchased from 
A/C Spruce.
Trying to save a few bucks now could be expensive later.
