Hey guys had issues with the solenoid and tried replacing it. I ordered a new one that was specifically for EGO 08/09's. This is my first ego that I ever worked on so maybe I am missing something here. Is this a manufacturer fluke or I ordered it incorrectly? Any work around?  Link: http://i.imgur.com/fRsAuin.jpg 

In the middle is the old hose, the right is the newer one. On the very left is the piece I am trying to connect it too. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

There is no such thing as an Ego8/9 solenoid. It is either one for the 08 or the 09, not both... They are not interchangeable.

My mistake, meant to put 09/10 not 08.

It's going to be really hard to tell whether you've ordered the wrong hose, or been sent the wrong hose, or been sent the right hose for the wrong part...

 

But here's what you can try. Pour a mug of boiling water and dip the end of the hose into it for a minute or so. Then dry it off and try to fit it over the barb. The heat from the water should make the hose more pliable.  Good luck!

Get me pictures of the solenoid you have, the solenoid barb, the hose, and the torpedo. I'll tell you what piece is incorrect.

Looks like you were sent cocker hose, which was the standard in 08.

Just a follow up for future reference. The EGO 09 hose is suppose to be larger compared to other EGOs. I had to order a hose specifically for the EGO 09 so it will fit. Now the challenge is somehow removing the hose on the solenoid and putting on the correct one. This all came from the EGO Tech guy on pbnation.
