Very much contemplating for reliability. Anyone use them? I know the tool is $$$
Is this the same type of fittings used for the A/C hoses? I've thought about looking into those too.
Basically yes. Russells fittings actually use the same Pro-Classic hose. The problem is the crimper is $800, but if you buy the same one direct from China its only $300. I have a dry sump set-up so the concern about the fitting nipples breaking makes me worry. The torsional stress of installing them...
Just an FYI JIC and AN share all the same specs for the same sizes. Which means if you know your hose lengths you can go to your local hydraulic hose shop and they can crimp ends on the hose for you. I have a hydraulic hose crimper and have used JIC crimp fittings for both my fuel lines and tranny cooler lines. I have no leaks and the ends don’t come off this way.
6JIC = 6AN
8JIC = 8AN
Dude, you seriously worry too much about things. My car has a ton of AN plumbing with reusable fittings, I have yet to have a single one leak or fail in 8 years. Use the matching fittings and hose, assemble them properly, and you won't have issues with it.
