Reference Material Charts - Tubing Sizes, Braided Line, A/N Fittings & Nuts & Bolts

Recommended Posts

Very Cool...

I can see a lot of work went into this and I'm sure its a huge help to alotta folks. I on the other hand don't even own a car and never worked on one... so I'm still kinda hose'd unless I know what size the original 1:1 part is.

I thank everyone for the info... but I reckon I'll keep lookin'

I guess I'm lookin' for a simple generalized list... fuel line is this many mm, exhaust is that many mm... that kinda thing.

Michael... all of the sizes are in inches that I did on the list. I didn't put the equivalent sizes in millimeters and not sure if that is one thing you are wanting. if so you can type "inches to mm" on google and  you type the known number in and it will convert it for you.  I posted a couple of pics below from the first page which shows the equivalent tubing sizes for the 1:1 size in scale.  Exhaust can very from 1-1/2" OD, 2" OD, 2-1/4" OD, 2-1/2" OD and 3" OD". Depending on the scale you are working in you will need use the size that's closest and your preference.

For the fuel lines the A/N fittings are sized in 16ths of an inch example the -4, -6, -8...etc.... -4 =  4/16 = .250  so 1/4" ID hose,   -6 =   6/16 = .375 so 3/8" ID hose, etc. the top chart was pulled directly from  an Earl's catalog showing what the typical hose sizes are used for. Some sizes over lap for different applications for example fuel line and oil line. In the Braided line chart on in the column on the left is the typical sizes that we models can by and I calculated what he equivalent one to one size would be. I show the calculated size and what the equivalent size would be for the scales listed.

I can pull the 2 Mil Specs to show the exact Port and Boss to show everyone where the sizes came from. Not sure what else you are looking for. I am hoping I have explained it the best I can and that it makes sense

Now that it's explained out a lil' more I find the chart a lot easier to understand... thank you for takin' the time out to educate a non-mechanical bus rider on some of the more common sizes of things. 

At least now I feel I can make an honest attempt at doing something right for a change.

Chris, A good many images are not available. This is all I see: TubingSizes_zps9a968c09.jpg 

Could you look thru all the posts and reinsert the original images. I am interested in small nuts and bolts.

You are welcome Lee. Just trying to help fellow modelers out. I just feel bad I didn't get this done sooner when I had switched things from photobucket to Fotki. Life has been a little crazy for me but hoping to really back at the bench building on a more consistent basis.

No worries. Life has turned upside down for many of us. My shifts have changed three times in two months, and now we have more than 15 maintenance personnel out, so things could get real interesting.
