So this brake hose would not have been made like this. You can tell from the picture someone has cross threaded during installation. Have seen before where a purchaser does this , reboxes the item and sends it back. Then the next purchaser gets it . Owning a repair shop some 35 years ago we found remanufactured parts even then were low quality from some suppliers. Master cylinders, alternators, water pumps, clutches, to name a few. If time allows this is what i do. We have a few competent rebuilders in our area that I use for alternators, starters and water pumps . Otherwise buy new. Carburetors are complicated and sophisticated. Never buy one that is remanufactured (assembly line low quality). There are some specialty shops that do a great job rebuilding carburetors. I actually spend my days restoring old carburetors now (retirement hobby) and have opened up a few remanufactured carbs to find things far from correct. Quadrajet and Holley carbs are my specialty which I enjoy.
