    npt to an adapters

    I did a search and didnt find what I was looking for.

    I'm pring out running steel braided -8 hose for my truck. The only place I found for an-npt adapters was JEGS. Anyone know anyplace cheaper for them?


    I found a site that has NPT to JOC adapters for like .55 ea, but I have no clue what a JIC fitting is.

    I have a hell of a hook-up on the lines and AN fittings (free) thats the only reason I am looking into it. All I have to do is call up a friend with the lengths of the lines and if they have it he will make the lines for me.

    i just thought of something, my buddy got fittings fairly cheap from a hydrulic/punamtic place but they where all like raw steel, i think. I will try to figure out what the name of the place is.

    JIC and AN are the same thread size and sealing angle (37 degrees). So they are interchangeable. Typically you will see fittings advertised as AN to be aluminum, and fittings advertise as JIC will be steel. True AN fittings are fittings that meet a military spec ( AN is Army-Navy).
    And as a side note, the flare fittings you see at hardware stores ( for those of you that shop for auto parts at home depot :) ) are different. the sealing angle on those is 45 degrees ( called sae flare ). Putting the two together is possible with most sizes (-6 is an exception, threads are different size.) but they do not seal right because of the two different angles.

    I knew the taper was the same angle and the threads were the same, but that doesnt always mean they will seal correctly. Like I said, I found a place online that had the JIC fittings for like .55 each so I will try those and see how it works. Even if they dont work, I can get all the fittings I would need for like $25 shipped.
