asssembly of beadlock hoses with nylog blue

Year: 1971
Make: Jaguar
Model: XJ6
Engine Size: 307 chev
Refrigerant Type: r134a
Country of Origin: Australia

Hi all, I am making up some hoses for my xj6, have the barrier hose and the beadlock fittings. comp, condenser txv and hoses are all new, only orig part is the factory evaporator. A local A/C shop will crimp the fittings for me once I cut them all to size and pre assemble them. I assume that you must push the hose right to the end of the uncrimped ferrule before crimping. It is a a rather tight fit pushing the hose to the end of the ferrule, would a little smear of nylog blue to aid assembly be detrimental in any way?

Thanks.

It is common to lubricate the hose insert when making up any kind of hose assembly. The Nylog Blue or compatible refrigerant oil would be OK.

Just don't get the lube on the outside of the hose. It will cause the hose to squirt out of the crimping ferrel when crimped.
