    300xs HD trim hose fitting thread damaged

    Hi all,
    I recently purchased a 2007 300xs Midsection with the heavy duty bracket. Unfortunately, I have found that one of the trim hoses has a damaged thread in the internally threaded flare nut on the upper fitting near tilt pin (closest hose in the picture below).
    Before changing out the hose, I would like to attempt to clean up the tread with a thread tap. Does anyone know the size/pitch of this tread?

    Don't think its deep enough to get a tap in it ? dremel tool might do it.

    Thanks, yes, I am worried about that, but the damage is on the first few threads, and I'm hoping a blind tap may just clean it up.

    Can't you just replace the nut?

    If you have a spare male fitting (regular steel, hydraulic fitting) use your dremel and cut some slices in the threads (like a tap)
    Then with oil carefully cut the internal threads (take your time) :-)

    Or ... change the nut, remember double flare.

    Thanks Nice Pair, I don't have a spare fitting, but I will give that a go if I can find the right fitting (I don't have a spare) any idea on the thread pitch/size as I should be able to pick up cheap locally.
    Failing that I will see if I can get a local hose shop to cut off/replace with the hose still fitted, and take it from there.

    Thanks again

    Sorry Bud, don't know the thread or pitch. I do have a spare fitting if you want to drop by.

    Can't you just replace the whole line?

    How is the hose from the pump to that fitting? might have to buy two hoses?

    Thanks to all for your input. I managed to clean up the thread with the dremel, lubricate it and slowly work it on. I have removed and installed it a couple of times now and it looks good to go.
    Thanks again
