1970 3400; The hyd compression fitting at the pump started leaking again. I loosened the nut and pushed the tube back in but this time it will not stay in. This has happened before and I have had luck reinstalling. I understand the fitting is expensive at the Ford dealer but only around $10 on this site and on EBay. The EBay and Amazon reviews are not good. Has anyone used the fitting from this site and is there any special precautions I should observed during installation? As usual, your experienced consideration is greatly appreciated.

Buy it from New Holland. There have been several posts about the cheap nut from this and other sites that does not hold. It does not have the metal washer that crimps onto the tube and blows off immediately. If you have the correct type on it now DO NOT work it back and forth to get the metal washer off. That will eat away at the OD of the tube and make it undersize so a new $40 nut will not hold either and you'll need a new $100? tube as well. To get the washer off carefully cut or grind it off.
