Just wanted to share, I only found out about Goodyear EZ-coils a year ago. They are amazing for 90 degree bends of hose. (wanted to edit: Gates has their own version, Unicoils, and they have smaller sizes than 1/2")
I’ve used them on my other cars where i need a tight 90 degree bend, or just want to err on the side of no kinks. I used one on my 1/2 Gates Barricade fuel hose, which kinks very easily, on my XJS connection to the fuel pump. Here’s a photo.
They are hard to find retail, I have only found them online. And I do NOT work for Goodyear
