Yes, the thing to make it quieter, that people try to incorporate into hose rebuilds reusing the original ends.

I was wondering if the presence of the orifice, embossing itself from the inside of the hose that way, was an indication of whether the hose was original or had been rebuilt?  Do rebuilt hoses reusing the orifice look like original ones, or is there a way to distinguish them from each other?

I guess I'll take that hose to a tube and hose shop and have them make a new one, and also have some a/c barrier hoses made for my Coupe GT.  This one car with a/c thing, when that car isn't driveable, is for the birds.  Hot, sweaty, sunstroked birds.
