Quantity: close


Earl's PERFORM-O-FLEX stainless braid-protected synthetic rubber hose is the premium quality racing hose depended on by the top racing teams of every professional sanctioning body in the world. PERFORM-O-FLEX features an inner liner of synthetic rubber. A partial coverage protective sheath of stainless steel braid is embedded in the liner during manufacturing. The reinforced hose liner is then bonded to a full-coverage outer protective sheath of high tensile stainless steel wire braid. Tougher than this, hose doesn't get. Yet Perform-O-Flex, with its inner liner, remains flexible at temperatures between -40 and +350 degrees F. Racing Greats have depended on PERFORM-O-FLEX hose and SWIVEL-SEAL hose ends since 1972. Perform-O-Flex hose is intended for use with Swivel-Seal, Auto-Fit and Auto-Crimp hose ends only. No other Earl's hose ends are intended for use with Perform-O-Flex hose. The use of other manufacturer's hose ends is not recommended. PSI rating is determined by many factors including hose end in use and assembly method.

Instructions for Part# 420008ERL

***The brown tracer in the stainless steel braid of the Earls Perform-O-Flex hose is being eliminated (-4 to -16 AN Hose). Many customers didn’t like the look of the tracer since it didn’t match other hose that they had on their vehicle. This change also improves the delivery of this hose, since it had a longer lead-time for production of this hose w/ the special braid. This change is cosmetic only - the performance specifications for the hose remain unchanged. This will be a running change since it may take up some time to use the existing stock of the hose w/ the brown tracer.
