Re: EZ clip system

Smaller hose with a tighter bend radius comes in handy sometimes. IIMuch sells adaptors so you can use the #10 hose for the heater hoses.

I havenít tried this hose kit but the cost is very low.

Re: EZ clip system

I saw the EZ system on vintage air web site and watched video...looked pretty easy to install, but first wanted to see other guys experience with it...if it works well and lasts. Changing condenser and adding dryer to non original a/c in 69 camaro. Seemed a bit pricey buying crimper and all, but would rather do myself than have hosed fabbed and all...

Re: EZ clip system

Used it on several cars and I really like how much smaller and flexible the hose is. Zero problems with it. The tool is the only expensive part but beats crimping and much faster. The parts are actually made by Aeroquip and I found a heavy duty truck supply place locally and several guys on ebay selling the pieces for a lot less than VA. I get a lot of fittings from VMACsINC on ebay. Decent prices. The pliers are like $58.

Re: EZ clip system

Curiosity got the better of me and I ordered one of the low cost hose kits I listed above so I can compare it to the Aeroquip parts. Price is so low I had to take a shot. I can buy four of those kits for the price of one Vintage Air kit.

Re: EZ clip system

Hopefully the hose is better than the burga flex hoses we see on some of the aftermarket AC systems. The thin wall burga flex hoses get hard and leak. I have been replacing the hoses at 50-65000 miles. Going back to normal barrier hoses and fittings.
