Thats cool Robert, I just didn't want any hard feelings, that certainly was not my goal at all.
I guess my point was that the makers of these kits often put crap hoses in their product.
When I was in my twenties I had a truck that I installed an external filter and oil filter on. It blew a hose and sprayed oil on the hot exhaust before the kit was a year old. Somehow, fortunately, the billowing cloud of smoke didn't catch fire.
This was one of those learned experiences that seemed important enough to pass on.
Too often a person feels obliged to use the stuff that is thought to be "engineered" to work with their product. Not always a great idea.
