    The male part of the new hose I bought is skinnier and longer than the original. The new will not screw into the T.

    It appears the new hose is the 14.5 inch version. The original hose is the 13.94 version. Do the shorter length hoses come with the shorter fatter male end that goes into the T?

    I had the same problem with getting a replacement rear hose for my 68 fury. Seems when I told them 4 wheel drum it was a different diameter on the male threaded end than my original. So they looked up front disc, and rear drum and it was correct.

    Really? Why don't you just take the old one with you to the store and compare them? This shit shouldn't be this hard!!

    I've noticed lately, they just don't stock much for our cars in the store anymore. I have to order practically everything in locally now.

    True statement and understandable. And even then, when you don't pay attention you'll get the wrong part and are stuck with it like this topic. Parts stores seem to know what's best for the customer when they clearly don't!
    Hey OP, why not see if a local Hydro shop can fix you up and make a new one? Good Luck

    What I've noticed is that OEM applications tend to be combined with other similar applications, "consolidated" applications are the result. Especially in the catalog listings. More "cut and try" than anything else, many times.

    The "analog" operation of taking the part with you, many times, just causes more confusion (and possibly a mess!). Many don't know what they're looking at, understand the nuances of what made the part different, OR have the capabilities of looking up those differences in their electronic catalogs. OR understand that "they are NOT all the same" on the older vehicles. Dealer or otherwise.

    Just some thoughts,

    I'd you have a parts store that is not part of a national chain go there. The one exception might be NAPA. I say might because they sold me the wrong light bulbs for the instruments in my 2007 T&C today...

    Finding a local/regional parts store that is completely independent, with paper books under the counter (OR on the counter!), is getting harder and harder to do. Most of those operators are well past retirement age, typically, and ready to let somebody else have it. Some are still around and do a BIG business, but their ranks are thinning. Most of the counterpeople might know something about cars, but have learned to follow the menus of the computer system. Not unlike the dealers parts people that have been trained to ask for a VIN before they look for anything. As things progress, "product knowledge" is in the computer rather than in the head of the person behind the counter, unfortunately.

    Another issue is that while there might be some regional parts store groups, MANY of them can be owned by the same parent company, which is also their supplier. The brands these local stores sell are what the supplier sells, which can change every so often when "a better deal" might come along. NAPA might have the best mix of OEM-level brands/suppliers, although some of the national chains have some good stuff, too. SO, shop for the best deals on parts and those that sell them to you! Amazon, Jeg's, and Summit might be attractive, but not everybody is situated close to one of the Jeg's or Summit stores ("candy stores" for car people).

    Personally, I'll use RockAuto to do research to see what's "out there", price and such, then see if there's anybody locally that might have what I desire. Back in the middle '80s, when our Mopar club was young and sponsored by an energetic Dodge parts department, when many 1-800 Chrysler dealers were dealing in Mopar Perf parts, I'd tell people that they were usually better to know what they needed (from the MP catalog), letting the local dealer order it, so that if it was wrong or otherwise, they had a local contact they could "strangle", if needed, rather than holler into the telephone as the person on the other end laid the handset down. Knowing what you really needed was very important, though!

    In more current times, though, the person on the other end of the 1-800 line should know more about what you have and how it works than anybody else. PLUS (hopefully) vastly superior product knowledge than anybody locally, I suspect.

    Back in the middle '70s, I wanted a "timing tape" to put on the balancer of the '66 Newport. I went to a performance-oriented auto supply store and asked for one. The Younger-than-me guy brought me a timing chain. When I further explained what I wanted, he had to go ask.

    Then there was the time I was looking for "ignition point grease". Back in the later '80s when that little vial was missing from any set of ignition points. One guy brought me some "grease", but not THAT grease I('d asked for. One more "I'll have to ask", with the final stop being at SuperShops for that huge tube of Mallory Point Lube they had hanging on the wall.

    Frustrations have been around for as long as cars have been on the road, with respect to buying parts for them. Old or new, no matter what.

    Enjoy!

    Josh / Furyus67,
    If you haven't solved the problem -- call me. It is simple. From your picture, it looks like some idiot gave you a 3/8" male hose instead of 7/16". (Probably had no clue what he did wrong -- and doesn't know what those sizes are or mean !!!!)
    I am leaving at 8:00 P.M. for Chrysler's @ Carlisle....
    Are you going ???
    (I have the correct brake hose in the van...)
    Yours, Craig....

    I ordered one from napa, they have to get it from the next store over so it won't be here until tomorrow. I'll take the old one in to compare.

    Hey Josh / Furyus67,
    That's right -- you told me you were taking the plunge.
    Good luck --- make it once and forever and it is great.
    I am here at Chrysler's @ Carlisle -- unannounced pop up torrential for half an hour this morning at 11.
    We dodged as big one about half an hour ago with lightning strikes -- very visual went North of us.
    We have rumbling thunder all around us now -- and are on storm watch from now through 10 P.M.ish...
    Good luck, Josh / Furyus67 ......
    Here come raindrops, later all......
