|NIPPLE, Flared Tube and Pipe Thread|
5052 is the preferred alloy for fuel lines, much stronger than 3003, better in fatigue, and still easy to bend and flare, but more costly. For complicated runs, I make a trial fit with cheap readily available 3003 , then the final with 5052. I have ordered this a few times in 6 or 12 foot lengths, and have allowed it to be coiled to save shipping. Unfortunately, it came coiled (less desireable) but A/C spruces computer doesnt seem to reduce the shipping back down from oversize charges. (So you might want to inquire how to actually save shipping, if you go that route. Doesnt seem automatic.
The fitting is flawless, I trust AS to source quality Products. I’m lucky to live fairly close so that I place an order I get it the next day! Super helpful
AN FITTINGS AN816-8D NIPPLE
Quick service as usual. Excellent product.
As it should be
It was the item needed to install a JPI FS 450 fuel flow instrument
Received order complete and very quickly even at the cheapest rate. Everything was as specified. Good jobe.
Just the fitting needed for the application - it had to be steel. A similar aluminum AN fitting might also fit, but it will gall if threaded into a cast aluminum component (like a carburetor or fuel flow transducer). Steel fittings only, for these applications.

AN816 nipple fittings are straight NPT at one end and 37 degree flared at the other. All types of AN816 are 37 degree flare.
Correct, AN816-6D has 9/16-18UNF 37* flare thread on one end, and 1/4" NPT on the other end.
Please enter the quantity desired in the input box for each size and material, then click add to cart. The system will then add all of the items you requested into your shopping cart.
The AN816-8D will have two types of threads. One end wilL have 1/2 tube OD in which will be a 3/4-16 thread and the other end is a 3/8 NPT.
That would be an AN822.
This could be used with a rubber hose like a 303 but you would need to install the 491 fittings on the hose.
