Quick question

I have read all the opinions and how to's on steel vs stainless lines. But my question is about the fittings that would be used with stainless tubing. Are SS or steel fittings required or can regular AN ( I am using 37 degree fittings) aluminum be used? There a couple of bulkhead fittings I cannot locate. I do have a few options but they are a lot more work.
Thanks to all
Randall

You can use the 37 degree steel tube on the AN hose fittings. Just need the right fittings.

I use AN fittings on my T-Bucket throughout the whole system. Make sure you use the tubing sleeves (AN819 series) with the AN818 coupling nuts. These provide extra security on these high pressure lines. I take hard lines from the master cylinder to each corner where they attach to a through-frame fitting. From there I use a steel braided flex brake line to each wheel.

A good source for AN fittings is Aircraft Spruce and Wicks Aircraft. They sell both the aluminum and steel AN fittings, including bulkhead fittings.
