I'm looking to order some new hoses to go from my pump to cylinders. The size of the OD male (I believe) fittings on the pump and cylinders are 3/8. My hose that I was using before says 3/8 on it, but, I can't read the rest. However, the ID size of the fitting on the hose is 1/2. What hose do I need? Thanks. :cool:

Is that the same thing for the fitting ON the hose? The ID of the fitting on the hose is 1/2, the OD on the fitting in the cylinder is 3/8. I need that same hose...

Is it this one?

if you got 3/8's fittings on the pump and cylinders then you need #6 hoses which is 3/8's. #8 hoses are for 1/2 fittings

Yeah the kit is used. and the hose says 3/8. Thanks for the help everyone. Ill get some #6 Hoses.

One more quick question. My back pump is on my right side of my trunk. Do I need two of the same length hoses or can the hose going to the cylinder on the right be 3 ft. and the one going to the left cylinder be 4ft? Will it make a difference?
