If the hose is proper stuffing box hose I don't think you could stretch it to fit the larger diameter. The original hose may have been proprietary to the manufacturer.
How much of a difference is their in the two diameters?
Yes, I've reviewed the Compass Marine
Website. Great stuff. We should give him a medal !
Difference in diameters is about 0.15", but I'm using Buck Algonquin hose which is very stiff !
Original hose is 1988 era ! Quite possible proprietary. And not as good as Buck.
