Old Air Products has been manufacturing new replacement a/c hose assemblies for many years. We have collected many original hose assemblies to use as samples to make sure our new reproductions will fit and function correctly. Our new hose assemblies are made with barrier style hose and crimped with a bead-lock style crimping tool. Although the crimped sleeves have a slightly different appearance than the original hose assembly our replacement hose assemblies are designed for proper fit and are compatible with all new automotive refrigerants.
