I lost one of my original fittings (gold color) that came with my set up. I found one at a shop (Silver color) but the inner whole is a little smaller will this cause an issue on my set up? It fits in perfect to the hose and the cylinder.

Hose Coaxial cable Metal


Metal Pipe




Will i need to find the exact one?

THE ZINC CHROMATE PLATING IS BEING PHASED OUT IN THE FITTING INDUSTRY, THE ONLY WAY TO FIND A "GOLD" COLORED FITTING WILL BE TO FIND SOMEONE WITH OLDER STOCK, BUT THATS A VERY COMMON FITTING AND MOST SUPPLIERS RAN OUT OF THEM A FEW YEARS BACK.

True that!... thanks! :thumbsup: I will see if they have the same one if not i will just buy one more silver.

Btw thats a 90° or elbow fitting. For future reference :thumbsup:
if you walk into a hydraulic supply house and ask for an "L" fitting, chances are you will be charged the highest retail price they have. because they know you already dont know the "lingo" and chances are you wont complain about the price.


ask for a 90 degree elbow (asking for an elbow can be a 45 or 90).

judging by the pics, looks like you need 3/8" pipe to #6 JIC 90 degree elbow.

I bought the other silver one. They didn't have the same size as the gold one. I will put the silver ones on the rear cylinders since they have a smaller hole.
