  • Use with tube nut couplers, sleeves and 37° flared AN fittings
  • Rated to 250 psi
  • Not recommended for high pressure (brake) applications
  • Available in 10 ft., 20 ft., or 30 ft. coils

Notes

The main issue when dealing with aluminum tubing (or any aluminum for that matter) is that it “work hardens” when it flexes, which can lead to cracks. It is important that the hard line is isolated from vibration and movement.

Clamp the tubing securely with rubber coated clamps (Adel clamps) and use bulkhead fittings where the tubing attaches to the flex line. Never run the tubing directly to the engine without a flexible hose section. If installed properly, aluminum tubing is safe and durable.

Well worth it looks beautiful was a breeze to bend

July 10, 2015
Very easy to manipulate I made a fuel line with it what I loved about it is that the inside diameter stays pretty unaffected when you're doing 90 degree turns unlike steel lines they tend to collapse or crimp during such tight curves if I messed up I could always bend it back which is nearly impossible with steel line the one thing and the only thing that would make this part perfect would be a polished aluminum line
Pros:
  • Doesn't Calaps When Bent
  • Compatible With Cop Fitti
  • Looks Great
  • Line Stays Cooler
  • Easy To Manipulate
Cons:
  • Looks Kind Of Scratchy
Yes, I recommend this product.

Part # 91011429 This aluminum fuel line will handle up to 250 psi which is more than sufficient for your natural gas application and should work fine. It can be 37 degree flared or used with the standard compression fittings.

You state this fuel line is OK up to 250psi , and then state not suitable for high pressure ??? I need it for fuel feed from a 120psi pump to a 450hp LS1 engine , and people seem contradictory as to its suitability ?? please reply

we have run aluminum 3/8 line on race trk producing 800+hp 120 psi fp feeding a tunnel ram it has always met our expectations

This aluminum line is OK up to 250 psi so your 120 psi requirement is well covered. We recommend the 37 degree flare with the appropriate tube nuts and sleeves for a secure fitting at the higher pressures. The aluminum line is NOT recommended for high pressure applications such as brake lines where pressures as high as 1200-1400 psi are common. In those cases a steel or stainless line is recommended.
1 answers

I wanted to make sure this supports 250psi, I read other places that aluminum is good for only up to 25 psi.

As long as you're running a carb,not fuel injection,no fitting will be needed.I ran this line from the tank all the way to the fuel pump on a 289ci with a short piece of flex line at each end and a hose clamp.No leaks ,no problems. I know you can get a lot of misinformation on the internet,but I,ve been building street rods for over 40 yrs.

I would not clamp hose to aluminum line, there is no barbs to help hose from slipping off. I would use 61763921 and then part #1061222.

Deluxe Flaring Tool, 37 Degree AN
(Part #91089528)
                        

This is the tool you need to make the 37° flares required for AN fittings. Standard brake and fuel lines are flared at 45° which are not compatible with AN hardware. This tool forms stronger flares assured by a smooth, even radius formed at base of every flare with its precision machined chamfer. Plus, its also self gauging - just insert tube flush with top of die for accurate flare size.

  • Hardened steel, chrome-finished cone makes exceptionally smooth, high-strength flares with a radius at base of
    flare – instead of the sharp angle formed by ordinary tools
  • Slip-on yoke permits use in tight quarters
  • Allows flaring where there is little space between nut and tube end
  • Feed screw design provides smooth, easier operation
  • Positive gripping and self-gauging of tube for exact flare size
  • Sliding die blocks lock in place by clamp action

Works on 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8" OD tubing such as aluminum, copper, brass and mild steel.
