Goss hose makes the grade


Goss offer a large range of SAE compliant hose suitable for many applications including:

  • Fuel
  • Emission
  • Heater
  • Transmission
  • Power steering
  • Vacuum hose.

It is crucial to the safe operation of the vehicle to use the correct hose and clamps specific to each application.

The Goss Brake Vacuum hose is a good example of that.  The Goss brake vacuum hose is compliant with SAE J1403 which is a requirement by law.  The complete specifications are as follows:

  • SAE J1403 (L) light duty, Class B.
  • 9mm / 11/32” ID or
  • 12mm / 15/32” ID

This hose is for use on in Light Duty vehicle applications.  It is resistant to heat, oil, grease, abrasion, weathering & ozone.

  • Operating temperature range: -40’C min to 125’C max
  • Intermittent use temperature: 135’C max
  • Working pressure: 150psi / 10bar

The Goss brake vacuum hose is intended for use in the power braking systems of vehicles or as connections on vacuum lines of vehicles or systems thereof.

Using a non-compliant hose or incorrect type such as J1402 9.5mm ID or 12.7mm ID hose in place of J1403 applications may damage the outer cover.  As the prime function of the outer cover is to protect the internal reinforcement webbing from the environment.  The internal reinforcement webbing can also be damaged and risk a vacuum leak in your braking system.

Using a hose with incorrect specifications may also affect the road worthiness of your vehicle and you can potentially risk a fine if applicable.

Goss carries a J1403 compliant hose in various lengths ranging from 1 meter packs to 30 meter dispensers. View the full list of specifications here
