I'm cleaning up a distribution block from a '72, and the steel hoses to the MC look like they're original, but I'm gonna get some new ones made anyway. These hoses have wire coiled tightly around them for most of their length. Is this a strength thing, or for heat dissipation? Are they worth worrying about when I get the new hoses made?
Thanks!
Simon

The factory uses them when bending the brake lines to prevent kinking, then leaves them on as it's impratical to remove them.
