aluminum an fittings

I'm doing a lot of work to my truck currently and one of them is redoing my whole fuel system. I didn't know if anyone has dealt with using aluminum an fittings on the heads. Pretty much I want 6an to 1/8 at a 45. I would rather steel but I'm having trouble finding steel ones. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: aluminum an fittings

I like steel better also which is why I use SwagLock fittings and stainless steel hard tubing.

Re: aluminum an fittings

I do a lot with swagelok at work. Top notch fittings in my opinion. I would love to replace everything with 316ss. They also offer a bellows style high pressure line that can handle high temps as well as high pressures.

I just put in a oil bypass filter setup with their PTFE line SS hoses in a buds truck. I think the 3,000 PSI pressure rated hoses should just barely handle it.
Only thing is its hard to find metric threaded SwagLoc in North America as I've had to order the ones I need since work doesn't get them in.

I used stainless tubing and JIC flare to do my fuel system and HPO lines.

what did you find with metric thread in the oil system?
