    getting crazy to order fueling (AN) parts...

    let me come to the point quick - long story before and after..

    I order a lot of parts at Summit racing I ask before in the support chat,
    if my parts will fit together - they say yes.



    After I get the parts, I ask again about the hose and the quick connect plug
    - because this quick connect plug is sliding slack into the hose.
    Now Summit tell me, that this plug is for a 3/8 standard hose and a -6AN hose will never get tight.
    But for this -6AN connectors I had ordered I need this AN hose - a 3/8 standard hose
    will never slide over I guess.

    So whats wrong?

    Need to do like a redneck? No other solution?

    Ah man, this is so painful to follow but I can't stop watching. Im sure you don't want to hear it...but...Get the riva regulator kit and be done with it and go ride. They have sold probably at least hundreds of kits and I have never heard of an issue. They have this figured out In a simple and reliable way. I've used two of them, one in my turbo ski and have had zero issues as have many others.

    That pile above must have exceeded the cost of the riva regulator by now....

    Wow lots of bling

    My diy regulator was a lot simpler; regulator, 3 6AN -> 5/16 barb fittings, some regular fuel line, 1' of submersible fuel line to block off stock regulator, few oetiker clamps.

    Summit say it will never get tight - because of this statement from Summit - I ask here what can I do.
    If Summit have had not say this, I not think too much, I not ask,- and go to build my fuel system....

    @all
    keep in mind that I have a suspension ski - AND - I will build a flow thru system with my Riva fuel rail.

    So I sold my Riva FPR set and my R&D FPR set (I have both before) because the hoses that comes with them both are too short / or cannot fit to the -6 AN hose barb fittings.
    It seem so, that a damn problem is still at every kind of way...

    So the question is, Summit have right with their statement or not.

    getting a -6AN hose tight on the this style of a 3/8 hose barb quick connect - with one normal Oetiker or some clamp? Or it is getting a leaking problem.

    Getting a longer fuel hose and a few oetiker clamps and tool are real cheap my friend

    send all all that stuff back and you'll probably have enough money to get me a plane ticket to Germany and I'll come help you

    You would be shocked! Only metric threads and tools/wrenches - and nobody have heard about AN fittings.
    So you can bring a hose that have a 7,9 mm end at one side and a 9,50 mm end at the other
