    Default Fuel line fittings and hose where to buy?

    Got numerous braided fuel lines on various pieces of equipment that need replacing.I'm talking the 3/16 and 1/4 ID braided line with crimped on JIC #7 & #8 male and female fittings.

    I'm trying to find a source for the fittings and hose,the fittings are nothing special,just zinc plated steel,no need for stainless or aluminum anything.Most hoses will be for diesel,although some gasoline lines could come up from time to time.
    I just need one more tool,just one!

    You might try looking for a local aviation part supplier.
    My recommendation?

    No matter what I tell you, get a second opinion.

    Five minutes from my house. "Hose Man". No good for you? Brake and nitrous lines for cars can be had inexpensively.

    I have bulk rolls of braided SS line and a hydraulic crimper to make mine up. JR

    When you say braided line, you don't mean braided SS do you? Kind of overkill for routine gasoline and diesel fuel lines.

    I have always gotten my fuel line and fittings from local industrial suppliers that handle the Eaton/Weatherhead line of products.

    Link to their hose and fittings master catalog, 502 pages so it may take a couple of seconds to download.

    If you're in oil country there have to be industrial suppliers who specialize in hose and fittings. The place in the
    link has a pretty good web presence but they are a full service brick and mortar store. Only a few miles from me...

    "AN-fittings" are sometimes easier to find on aftermarket than JIC as its popular choice for tuners...
    AN and JIC have same basic dimensions but "real" AN has tighter tolerances and quality control. Most aftermarket AN parts are bling-bling aluminium and mystery quality.

    But like said, "oil coast" should have plenty of shops with the correct fittings and the crimping equipment.
    I would start from Parker store search

    McMaster has "mini ball valves" that I like for shutoffs at the tank. I put them on tractors and lawn and garden equipment.

    If you need braided SS lines for fuel, oil or brakes, try one of these companies. I have used them all.

    www.tsflightlines.com Makes ready to use hoses to your specs

    www.pegasusautoracing.com Hose section is a little hard to find. Use search.
