    Default hyd. diverter lines?

    Anyone make there own stainless lines for the hyd. diverter? I don't feel like payin $240 for the line kit from Place. What size line, fittings did you use?

    I can't post picts. from this computer. My picts are in the boat spam section, '74 Schiada...
    -4 SS female jic (an) on braided hose. got mine at a Parker distributorship here in NorCal.

    give up the lengths you need and I'll quote you.
    Mine are 27 and 29"s.

    I used 1/4" refrigeration lines with brass fittings, about $15.00. I wasn't about to pay that kind of money either. I changed the lines this winter just as a maintainance thing as they were still just fine. Not the prettiest around but very functional.

    I made mine out of -4 line. I went with steel aeroquip fittings they are more durable, but after being lake water for a while they start to discolor and corode. But I had someone bump into a -4 aluminum fitting and brake it, they are pertty fragile.

    Thanks for the replies guys. What about the size of the fittings that go into the pump and the solenoid?

    I took the old lines off and I forgot which line goes to which port on the diverter.
