Default AN Torquing

pegasusautoracing.com just sent me an E-mail and in it it a very interesting article on torquing AN fittings and how many of us over tighten them. If interested go to the site and in the search box type AN torquing and the link to their article should come up. You might not find it interesting but I did.

Good information. I'd always heard "not too tight" but this gives a definitive guide.

Thanks Bill.

Very good information and they have an excellent one page downloadable pdf with that and a bunch more. Great find for all of us.

Thanks a lot guys! Very useful. I have overtightened AN fittings in the past and learned to just get them snug.

Those little cone washer/seals they sell look like a good thing to have around.

I've formed double flares, then corrected to 37 deg with stainless tube and over tightened and damaged fittings before. One of those seals would have been nice to use from the beginning in those instances to protect the fitting as well as adding a seal.
