    Best Source for AN Fittings and Fuel Line

    Kind of a general question that didn’t seem to fit any of the tech sections, so Shit Shat it is.

    ready to plumb the fuel system on our Mustang project and I am considering using braided fuel line with AN fittings.

    I only need 5’ or less of -4 and -6 line and so far my searches are all turning up sources that want to sell 10’ or more.

    who’s your go-to for this kind of stuff?

    For oddball small projects, Summit Racing is my go-to.

    Now, someone with better knowledge can drop some science & make me look like a rube

      I like to keep small engine/automotive fuel line in stock. Whenever we're low I just Amazon a 20' bundle or spool. They're usually the best price wise

              Good luck. I went in there a few weeks ago for a few common 1/2" and 5/8" nuts and bolts. They didn't have a half of what I needed, and we're not talking about anything unordinary. Like no 1/2" in three different sizes that I needed.

                  Fuck Fastenal. They used to order stuff into the store that wasn’t In stock and then try to charge me shipping for it.

                      This link is gold.

                      These were the only guys in the country that were able to solve an AN problem I was having. Huyabusa motor in a sports racer that had a fitting on the dry sump that had some strange British thread on it. I did have to send them the fitting after 3 mis-steps so we could get the correct one. Even they were baffled but they did help me out.

                      It did help that I took final payment from one of the Indycar teams I worked for in the remaining AN stock, a pickup load of fittings from -3 to -16, all aluminum fittings anodized. Still my go to.

                      Summit, or Speedway. Avoid Pegasus unless you are desperate, they cater to racers and price accordingly. Parker stores if you can manage with the steel fittings, local store does not carry aluminum. Locally we have a Tubes n Hoses shop, they can find anything I ask for.

                          Saving that one for later. I have a weird one that is some sort of funky British thread the last owner used on my air pressure gauge. It used to go to a small tank of compressed air to run the locker, but I swapped it for an ARB and air tank. I keep bringing the hose and fitting to all the ag fitting guys around the area who normally know their shit, but no one can figure out the thread pitch and I'm waaaaay too lazy to run a new line.

                            BSP = British Standard Pipe thread. But the Brits couldn't leave it at that so you have, two kinds of BSP.

                            BSPP = British Standard Pipe Parallel...... uses an o-ring seal
                            BSPT = British Standard Pipe Tapered......like our NPT

                            Buuuut, a male BSPT fitting can be used in a female BSPP hole.

                            Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when you'll come across that crap either.
