    I ordered my new fuel cell a few days ago, RCI 16 gallon with 2" drop sump. It has an -8AN on the bottom and -6AN. I just want to an adapter that turns one of these to a simple 3/8" barb so I can plumb normal hard or rubber line to my pump. Eventually I will redo it with full stainless and a nice electric pump and so on, but for now just want to get the K5 running. Can't locate this part on Summit.

    there are a lot of proper AN/JIC hse options available you do not have to use the Bling stainless braid stuff
    Aeroquip sells a hose numbers something like 1053 or 1503 that is black single braid rated for fuel among other things
    couple that with reuseable fittings would be a nice setup IMO

    Go to your local hydrualic shop and buy JIC fittings. They are identical to AN fittings in both thread pitch and seat angle, but are common to machine hydraulics and are made of steel. AN fittings are usually aluminum and tend to be found more on aircraft and high dollar drag cars. You can get an adapter to pipe thread and then run whatever you want off of it with easy to find fittings in the plumbing section of your local hardware store.
