I am awaiting the return of my high pressure and pump-auxhillary tank
hoses. I paid 150 for both with shipping, although the high pressure alone
cost me about 125 to get rebuild.  They did put the noise damper back in.

I will have pictures of the rebuilt hoses tommorow, so reply to this if
you want me to post them.

Talk to Gordon, tell him that Gary recommended them.

> In the past I have described several times the internal subtleties of
this hose to this list.  Check the archives.  In short, the air captured
in the upper half of the hose is the compliance and the annular ring
orifice between the center restriction and the plastic tube is the
resistive component of a tuned acoustic filter which is built into the
hose.  The plastic tube handles the output of the pump and it must
extend at least through the orifice.
