It seems as if it's seizing up. im using assembly lube and it only wants to go on 1/2 way.

It is earls prolite 350 hose and earls fittings.
First off, are you using just a vise or a set of fitting soft jaws,

Use white lith instead of assy lube, and try and use a longer wrench.

If you are using just a vise, make sure your not grabbing the fitting too tight, you can actually oblong the collar.

The an wrench is the problem, you have no leverage, they were never designed for assy only installation. -12 is 1 1/4 wrench if you can find a Snap-on or Matco, long series, they work the best
