  • 37 degree flared fittings

    Looking for an alternative to using hoses for pump tie-ins. The pumps we use are 3:1 and 5:1 for oil and antifreeze with grease needing 50:1. Fittings are all class 3000 with sch 40, 80 black iron. In an attempt to make the install look cleaner I would like to make all tie-ins from piping to pump out of tubing. Are the flares from a Ridgid 377 37 degree flaring tool the same as JIC? Who is a good source for fittings? Thanks

      Most hydraulic supply stores will have good selection or access to a good selection, most likely even NAPA, should have access to them, (in the country I can get most anything from NAPA, and if not try John Deere, or even Case IH,

      When I built my backhoe, I use JIC fittings, and bought from "surplus center" and I ordered steel tubing from another hydraulic supply place, and some of the valves and other,

      Surplus Center even has premade Hydraulic hoses in JIC ends,

        Good to know. I am in need of some replacement hoses for my Dig-It backhoe. I'll have to see what they have and compare to having the hoses made up locally.
        I need some pins and bushings and a cylinder rebuild kit too.
