SEMA 2013: Fragola Offers Nifty Way to Clean Hose Lines

Fragola Performance Systems offers a full line of hoses and fittings to meet nearly every imaginable automotive plumbing need. And when those hoses and fittings are matched together, sometimes leftover debris remains inside the assemblies, even after a few shots of compressed air.

“We now have a garden-hose flush kit to clean all the debris out,” says Jeff Fragola. “You can also it with a plug at the other end to check pressure or for leaks.”

Two kits are available: The Sportsman with -6AN to -10AN fittings, and the Master Test Kit offers -4AN to -16AN fittings. A -8AN garden-hose adapter is available separately.

Also available from Fragola are nitrous fittings with an internal screen.

“We moved the screen to the AN side where it’s more accessible. You can just wipe the screen off and put the fitting back on,” says Fragola.

The nitrous fittings are offered offered in a variety of sizes in blue and one fitting is offered in red.

Another handy offering from Fragola is the Sportsman fuel-line kits for dual-inlet carburetors, including Braswell and Holley HP. The line features a black-nylon crimped hose, and there’s a provision for a fuel-pressure gauge. Four different center-to-center lengths are available. Also note that the tightening nut for the inlet is down low, out of the way of the bowl for easy wrench access. Individual long fittings to the carb are also available.
