I,m currently running a black magic whammy set up and i,m wanting to upgrade the returns and the pressures in the trunk to hardlines for the coming summer. I,m using #6 lines and fittings. What size tubing should i be using? And would the hardlines still mate to the existing 9/16 JIC that the hoses are currently on?

Cheers guys

They will mate up to the JIC, but to #6 if that what you working with. I havent seen any 9/16 , mainly 3/8 and 1/2

So 3/8 s/s tubing will mate upto a #6 fitting? What size will the nuts be for the tubing? I don,t want to end up buying the wrong shit.
Sorry to sound like a dumb ass ;)

Its all good, some people have there own preference, but I like the flare type.

This is where I get almost all my fittings from, they got a lot of odd ball shit and good prices.

I dont know how much you paid, but you can make them for less than 7$ per line.

And use stainless so you can polish them out cause when you chrome them out, they dont like to go on too EZ plus no chipping. And it looks dead on chrome.
