i had one made for $60 by an aero hose manufacturer.
it was completely overspec'ed.
they cut off the old ends, cleaned and replated them, welded on new hose
crimp connections, crimped on new hoses, and covered the whole thing with a
silicone fireproof and abrasion resistant sleeve.
the pump is rated at 150 bar, so 3kpsi rated hose should be good enough...
