Fuel sender feed line thread size? (AN fitting)

Quoting jepherz:
Actually, if you look at the picture CP posted, it looks to me like there was even teflon tape on the hose fitting, between the red and blue anodized pieces.



I think that was what caused the fitting to crack. But it appears to me that winter road salt got in there and was eating away at the inside of the fitting. It's totally fubar'd and is half the diameter of a new fitting...no threads at all left in that area, just metal rot.

All fixed and running again with no leaks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/applause.gif I forgot that fuel expands when it gets warmer, as the outside temps rose a good 25* here today. So I came home to a nice big puddle of fuel underneath the car from the open sender tube. DOH!
