AN fittings and hose ends are commonly used in automotive and racing applications for fluid transfer, such as oil, fuel, coolant, and hydraulic fluids.
Here are some key points to consider when working with AN hose ends and fittings:
AN sizes are based on the outer diameter of the hose or tubing.
Ensure that the AN hose ends and fittings you're using are compatible with the type of fluid you're transferring (oil, fuel, etc.) and are rated for the appropriate pressure and temperature.
Use high-quality AN hose ends and fittings to prevent leaks and ensure durability, especially if you're dealing with high-pressure systems.
Select the appropriate type of hose for your application. Common types include braided stainless steel, PTFE-lined, and nylon braided hoses.
AN fittings rely on a metal-to-metal seal. It's important to tighten the fittings to the correct torque specifications to ensure a proper seal without over-tightening and damaging the fittings.
Angle and Rotation
AN hose ends are available in various angles (such as straight, 45 degrees, 90 degrees, etc.) to accommodate different routing needs. Consider the hose routing and placement when selecting the fitting angles.
AN fittings typically have 37-degree flare (AN/JIC) threads. Ensure that you're using compatible fittings and adapters with the correct thread type
After assembling the fittings and hoses, it's a good practice to pressure-test the system to ensure there are no leaks under operating conditions.
Nice kit, with out the premium price. A must for power strokes. Comes from over seas. Took about 10 days to receive, with good Communication along the way. Going to consider other offerings from SPELAB.
Good material, good prices,
Only the flanges need to adapt, perfect fit just need modifications in the connection to the pipes, different angle 📐 flange need more than 90 degrees to fit the pipes , other than that is perfect fit in the engine M54, my chassis is E46 thanks for the product
