Sorry for my ignorance. But I am preparing myself to make the fuel line for my swap. So far my setup is an golden eagle fuel rail( if you know the thread size for the ends please let me know), Edelbrock FPR #1728 (180 GPH w/ dual –6 AN inlet, single –6 outlet and –6 external bypass for EFI applications ....#1728 this is taken from the site) So if anyone can recommend me some size and fitting for the setup or direct me to a site that will let me get a better understanding i greatly appreciate it. My setup will go from fuel filter(banjo) to the fuel rail, out the other side of the fuel rail to the fpr, and fpr out to the return line.

anyone know what type of fitting is used for the return metal line. I can probally use the tradition clamps, but wouldn't mind making it look better with a matching fitting.

Ok I'm down to the last fitting for my swap. I use -6an lines. The last fitting i needed is the one that connects to the fuel return hardline. A 1/4 rubber hose will slide over it, but still not sure what fitting to buy. I tried to clamp it down with the -6 an hose, but seems to stressful for the clamp. Can anyone help me identify what fitting I need like the one hybrid has in there line (A).

Ok, found a solution for my return line. total cost 3.99. What I did was visited my local hardware store and found barb fittings.
1. 1 - 1\4in bard fitting for the return line hose(stock rubber hose) to the hardline.
2. 1 - 5\16 barb fitting to the fpr -6an hose.

In my case all they had instock that would work would be a 5\16 male elbow and 1\4 female fitting. Which resulted in 3.99. This is one of many ways you can do it.





Here is my parts list for my fuel system with -6an lines with Golden eagle fuel rail and my Edelbrock EFI FPR with dual -6 an input and single -6an out.

What's a -6 or -8 AN?

found this on Summit Racing http://www.streetandstripmotorsports.com/charts_guides/charts_6or8.htm very helpful.


What's a -6 or -8 AN?

OK, so you're ready to order fittings for that new fuel system you just got. Now there's only one thing: What's a -6 or -8 AN fitting?

"AN" (Army Navy) Sizes were established by the aerospace industry. The measurements represent the O.D. (outside diameter) of rigid metal tubes. Basically, dash sizes are the numerators of fractions with a denominator of 16.

EXAMPLE:

-6 is equal to 6/16 in. which is equal to 3/8 in.
-8 is equal to 8/16 in. which is equal to 1/2 in.

In the examples above, a -6 AN fitting would work with a pipe that has a 3/8 in. O.D. A -8 AN fitting would be used with 1/2 in. O.D. pipe.

Here's a simple chart, just in case you don't want to do the math.

-02 AN is equal to 1/8 in.
-03 AN is equal to 3/16 in.
-04 AN is equal to 1/4 in.
-05 AN is equal to 5/16 in.
-06 AN is equal to 3/8 in.
-08 AN is equal to 1/2 in.
-10 AN is equal to 5/8 in.
-12 AN is equal to 3/4 in.
-14 AN is equal to 7/8 in.
-16 AN is equal to 1 in.
-20 AN is equal to 1 1/4 in.
-24 AN is equal to 1 1/2 in.
-32 AN is equal to 2 in.

The most commonly used fittings are adapters. These adapters connect an AN fitting to a pipe thread fitting. Most fuel pumps, regulators, and canister type fuel filters, come with pipe thread inlet/outlet ports. In order to use braided line, the ports need to be changed to a AN type of fitting. This is when a "pipe to AN adapter" is needed.

The most popular sizes used in fuel systems are the -6 and the -8 AN, although some high performance fuel pumps and regulators require a -10 AN fitting.

Dapretendr,
For the fitting you are looking for. You will have to look for specific shops. A shop that deals with hoses, hydralic hoses, anything dealing with hoses. They will be the best shot.
