Custom Hoses/Fittings

Hey Guys,

I am stopping in here since I figure you all have definitely encountered the need for custom hoses.

Understanding the logistics of PSI/fluid type/temperature range etc required; what fittings have you found that will fit over some of the BMW quick release(plastic) nipples/nozzles?

(example: the bottom hose of the oil separator)

I stopped in Aeroquip yesterday to get educated on hose/fittings.

Thanks for your help.

I haven't....and I would say I'm fairly aware of what's out there.

You will have to convert both the male and female end to be able to build custom hoses.

Thanks PEI330Ci. I looked up the manufacturer of the hose which is Norma but I didn't see a place to purchase just the fittings.
