No problem. Looks like yours is coming along. Actually, on the two stock fittings that I didn't use (the original supply/return) I cleaned them on the inside (dremel) 1/4" or so inside each opening, liberally applied flux to the bottom end, pinched the tank-side shut, dropped in a few cut pieces of solder and torched it til some silver came out of the pinch point; and then filled with epoxy from the top and pinched off the top.

Sorry guys - I finally brought some order/files to my photobucket account, but did it by moving pics instead of copying them to the new files. Consequently lost all the pic links -- because I'm an idiot. Pics restored.

Hi!

This thread has inspired me to do an AN6 conversion of my fuel system. I'm wondering, what kind of bulkhead fittings did you use?

The ones I can find in here Sweden that come with teflon o-rings are straight (like this http://www.mrtuning.se/p/universal/a...nomforing.html). But it looks as you found 90 degree ones? The 90 degree ones I find here in Sweden (like this http://www.mrtuning.se/p/universal/a...nomforing.html) are only for firewall use.

Would be very grateful for some info on this!

I don't see why they would be only for firewall use. If they are, try something from Earl's. Or Aeroquip or Fragola. There are a lot of options for fittings!

My 90 degree bulkheads were from Fragola; however, as AN (see what I did there?) mentions above, anyone's bulkhead 90 should work. Be sure to use a nylon washer on both sides of the fuel hat.

Ok, thanks! All this AN-stuff is getting clearer and clearer.

Regarding the fuel sender, any tips what to use to seal:
a) The mostly unused/capped vent where the three wires (fuel level sender ball, fuel pump +, ground) will go through? Just pass the wires through and fill with some kind of sealant? Silicon? Some kind of JB Weld?
b) The original pipe that the pump sends fuel through. Weld it, or fill it with some kind of epoxy putty?

I left a bit above/below the hat. Bent over/crushed the bottom, filled from the top with JB Weld and then crushed the top. Also used JB Weld to seal up the wires. I wouldn't use RTV - it won't hold up to gasoline fumes.

Bumping in hopes that M.H. Yount can again restore the photos to this most useful thread. Thanks for all your contributions!
