Re: Inlet pipe couplers

I’ve ordered a length 32mm ID silicone hose suitable for fuel & oil.

I am also curious about this hose type. I will add to the request.

I am also wondering why Jabiru uses a brittle sealant to seal the base of
the inlet pipe where it fits into the manifold. It seems like this is an
invitation to a leak. Would it make more sense to seal with a silicone
sealant or similar, like Loctite 510.

Anyone used fuel resistant silicone hose for the couplers ?
If not, is it just standard A1/A2 32mm fuel hose ?
