Where to get steel nitrous line?

Piecing together a nitrous kit. Have the direct port foggers installed. My next step is to find some hard steel line, not braided steel hoses, to run from the solenoids to the foggers. Does anyone know where to get some hard steel line and what size it should be?

Also what size are the inlets (the threaded part that the hard line attaches to that the jets slide into on the fogger nozzles)? AN/NPT/ETC?

You can buy replacement hard line kits for Foggers from most nitrous companies, in stainless or regular gold irridite steel. Comes in like 16" straight lengths with the 37 flare on the end to mate with the flare jet and takes an AN nut, 3AN IIRC. You have to bend them yourself, of course. Line size is 3/16". Don't forget the tube sleeve to go with the nut.

You can use plain old 3/16" steel hard brake line but you need to have a 37 flare tool, not the automotive standard 45.

I've gotten them several times from NOS, for people that wanted me to bend up stainless instead of the plain steel that most kits come with.

The fitting that the flare jet fits into can also be purchased seperately, or you can make them by machining off the flared tip of a 3AN fitting and counterboring the hole for the stem of the jet. Some brands of fittings may not need the counterboring, the hole is already big enough.
