As you can imagine my CCE kit came with nothing but the best quality components.....NOT!

All the hoses I had started to leak from the fittings. Went to the local Parker place and he told me the main reason for that is poor quality of materials and shitty crimp.

After I changed out all the hoses I've yet to have a leak of any kind....I'm talking hoses and not my CCE cylinders :biggrin:

I changed the front hoses for Parker and the rest are Gates...same shit different smell. Still no leaks
