Thanks for posting Bentley! With 4 data points I'd conclude the numbers on the return hose are a date code in the DDD - Y format. For your 12B Norwood X22, the PS return hose date of 291 - 8 or October 17, 1968 is about 60 days prior to the build date. Thanks also for confirming use of Wittek 2 style screw clamps on both ends of the return hose.

Not an expert on these but most of the original high pressure hoses I have seen have one long crimp, not the two closely spaced crimps that was on yours.

Thanks for posting, the single crimp style would seem to be period correct. Would you post a photo of the writing/script on the high pressure hose please?

You probably already know this, but if replicating factory hoses they should also have that foam rubber sleeve as seen in 70Z28LT1's picture.  I'm not sure if the later replacements had that detail.  A few older PS hoses threads from here:

I'll have to dig it out if I can remember where it is.  :-[

Maybe its in the bathroom or kitchen under the sink.  So many parts around the house. ;D

Dug out my hoses and the high pressure hose markings are basically illegible.  There's an "A G04279" which is the date code and that's about it.
The low pressure return hose is marked "P.S. Return  96-0 3931898 CC"

It would be great if you would add a photo.
