Fuel Lines ?'sAN number conversion to inches
Anybody point me to a chart that converts AN numbers to inches? Like AN -6 equals ...? I'm looking for the AN equivalent to both a 5/8 and 3/4 in. ID hose. Thanks.
I'm thinkin the 6 = 6/16ths,
Check carefully. I think AN-6 is for use with 6/16=3/8 tubing, ie the fittings match. But the ID is not 3/8" like the tubing. The AN hose has a smaller ID. Go measure some -8 hose, it is about 0.40" ID.
The first is typically for fuel.
And for Earl's hose:
Each dash number is equal to 1/16" in OD of the tubing that it replaces.
Carl and Mopar Dad hit it on the head. 6/an line hooks right up to my 3/8" hard line from the tank with the right fittings of course.

Aluminum Fuel Line
SIX PACK 2 GO
I'm thinking of getting aluminum fuel line. What's the best brand? Tips and tricks? I'll need to use 1/2". Who makes the best tube bender and fittings? Thanks.
1/2 tubing is 1/2 inch tubing .. id order the stuff from summit, most likely the cheapest ... aerquip and earls are the fittings of choice by racers .... its pretty soft stuff, so pretty much any tubing bender will work, i didnt even use one.
You should be careful where you route it because it is so soft... keep it away from places that have the possibility of rocks or debris flying up.
My first 25-feet were Moroso.
Used Tubing Cutter to cut to length
i used aluminum on my car, it bends and flares real easy. use a bender it looks a lot nicer than doing it by hand.
You can get a cheap-o-deluxe spring bender set from Sears for <$10. Probably have them at other hardware stores as well. Helps prevent pinching during bends
Be sure to flush it before you hook it up or you will tiny bits of aluminum go through your carb..........Big problems!!!!!!!!!
