Looking to order braided fuel line 10 inch or 12 inch long with AN-8 fittings. Not sure where to find this. I'd like to order off summit but can find where u can choose lengths and fittings

Don't forget to check Jegs for their price. It's sometimes a few cents cheaper. Both places will price match each other though. I've gotten good service from both places.

If you're not married to the braided lines, I'd check out the Earls hose and push lock fittings. They worked great for my setup.

They are not a crimp type fitting, they assemble and lock together inside the fitting collar.

You order the fitting and hose to make them yourself. Its a barb that is not coming apart. They are AN fittings on one side, hose barb on the other. When I messed on up, I had to cut it off. I actually had to heat the hose a little to soften it and use a little lube to press it on. I used Russell, not Earls. It's not braided, comes black or blue and its a neat easy assembly.

Judging by "Oldcutlass'" reply, if I misunderstood this as being "pre-made" I'm not alone. I have in my years never seen AN hoses and fittings pre-assembled unless it was application specific. Seeing as how he didn't specify anything other than braided fuel line, its hard know where its going. This is the reason we offered solutions that allowed him to make his own. If unless its a straight to straight connection, it is always better to assemble your own so the fitting is clocked correctly.

Although thats not what I meant in my post, they do make premade hose assemblies and are available @ Summit.

I stand corrected, you meant otherwise...

I saw those before and he did say -8AN, those are -6AN. I still stand by my theory of making my own, but one size doesn't fit all...
