Incon turbo oil feed line

Can anyone advise what type fitting this is for oil feed line? It appears to be a -4 line with some sort of additional fitting with a nipple that inserts into the line. I have a leaky line and need to swap it out but unsure what to get. TIA

That is a fitting that is designed to be assembled in the field(3 piece), as opposed to a crimped fitting. You could probably get a new olive(ferrel) for it, trim back a little to some fresh teflon and reassemble it to cure the leak. That being said, Incon is very old so the hose is equally old. Might not be a bad idea to replace the whole line for piece of mind.

Given the fitment, I need the length so trimming is going to necessitate a new line anyway. So, if I can simply replace the line and ferrels...what would I ask for? Is there a name for this style of connection? Thx

I think I figured it out. It's just PTFE like this... How To Install PTFE Hose Fittings - AN Hose Fitting Guide

I have what I need to handle this from all the braided fuel lines I've assembled over the years. Just need some new line and ferrules.

Thanks again.

That's pretty much it. Parker and Aeroquip are the two main manufacturers of those style fittings. Try and verify which you have so when you try to get the ferrel it will be the right size. Every manufacturer makes stuff a little bit different size and more times than not, leaks happen because of mixing different vendors parts.

Thanks...my concern exactly... been doing some research to try and determine what I have. Too bad Incon is long gone. Would be nice to get their feedback.

Need to confirm, but for future reference, it looks like it's Parker stuff...

090-4B Ferrule

20090-4 9/16" Hex Socket

Page 56-57 here... https://www.parker.com/literature/Pa...AT%205162F.pdf

Going to contact the local Parker store and see if they can set me up with a new line. I would just as well buy an off the shelf assembled line with -4 fittings at either end, but the 90 degree fitting with the nipple on it at the turbo is not something I can remove with the turbo installed so I'm stuck with this stuff w/o an engine pull and that's not an option. You can see why here...

Good news...Parker puts the part number on the ferrule so I've confirmed I have the parts I listed above. Off to the local Parker store next.

FWIW - Local Parker stores were no help. I had to search for these parts online and was finally able to piece it together from a few different vendors. I basically had to use a couple extra -4 adapter fittings to make up the length when I cut the hose since no one was able to source new hose for me. Bottom line, if anyone else runs into this you may have to do something similar or replace the entire assembly using another vendor's components. Fortunately, I primed the oiling system (it's a new engine) and it was leak free.

It’s easy to make a new PTFE hose to your specific length. About the only issue I tend keep in mind is use the same fitting manufacturer as the hose manufacturer. Personally I try and keep everything Fragolia, so I don’t intermix.
Race Part Solutions should have any ancillary attachments?

As far as the age of the hose, with the added information that it already degraded and started to leak. Why are you adding extra fittings to makeup the length you cutback?
Risk/reward

Risk of oil leaking is substantial with that old line. Best case it’s a nuisance leak. Worst case it either, starts a fire, starved your turbo, oils down your tires or possibly the guy behind you.

Start fresh with a new hose.

Good advice...It's easy to do when you can access all components without removing the engine.

In my case, the fitting that attaches to the turbo cannot be removed without pulling the engine so I was stuck using Parker stuff. I'll keep and eye on it, but based on my observations, the line did not appear to be heat aged... and I have come across a few of those in my days. It will also be properly shielded.
