thread sealant for AN Fuel fittings

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

Just wondering if any one has any tips for sealing AN fuel fittings. Is standard thread tape fine? or some liquid sealant better?

 

cheers

You don't need anything, they are self sealing.

I didnt think I would need it but was just checking

Probably do if they're Chinese knockoffs

They are just some -6AN to 5/16 barb fittings from NZKW.

Nothing between an and an so they are easy to undo. The angles inside the fitting ensures good seal. 

 

For putting the an adaptors into something to start the line it depends. 

I used gasket seal on my oil plates as I could see both sides, but Teflon tape on the engine block as i didn’t trust it to not bead inside and fall off.
