To prevent braded hose from destroying other parts use Aeroquip fire sleve made
to fit specific hose size. I built many Turbo oil supply hoses the way you did.
All one needs is ability to brase well. My rally car is completly replumbed
with this hose and it works well but it is expencive. You can use it everywhere
you can screw on or brase on AN adapters.
