Cut-Off Length:  The length of that part of the coupling not directly in contact with or applied to the hose. Subtract the sum of the cut-off length of the two couplings from the total length of the assembly, and you will have the approximate hose-cut length to be replaced.
Dash Size:   A shorthand method of denoting the size of a particular end fitting or the inside diameter of a hose.  Measured in 1/16 of an inch (i.e., -4 = 4/16” or ¼”).
