Braided stainless fuel lines

I am going to a external fuel pump with my RCI fuel cell.
The fitting sizes on the fuel cell are -8AN.
I am a little confused on what fuel line I can use.
Can you use a braided line like this for a fuel injected engine?

I would also be using the Summit AN fittings with it.
This would be used to supply the fuel to a stock 4.0L engine in my YJ.

1000 p.s.i. and designed to handle gasoline. Should work if that's what you want to use.

I've been curious about this. I need to order some fuel line parts to install my Genright cell. Is the -6an hose equivelant to 3/8 that I need to supply my V8?

Should be just what your looking for. When you put the connectors on, use a cut off wheel to cut the hose and get a CLEAN edge. Then put a dab of oil on the part of the connector that goes in the hose to make it slide on easier. If you care that the fittings dont get scratched, put electrical tape on your wrench first.

Wrap the hose in electrical or painters tape several winds before you use the cutoff wheel too, much cleaner slice through the layers.

Ok so here is my problem.
As I said I have never used braided stainless line so bear with me.
I am using this external fuel pump.
http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...&keyword=e2000
As you can see it has two nipples to attach the fuel lines.
How would I attach the line to the fuel pump?
Thinking I would use this end

With this adapter
http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...0648/overview/
To this Coupler
http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...3erl/overview/
Then I could use a brass nipple
http://www.farmandfleet.com/products...hose-ends.html
and then use rubber fuel injection hose to attach the fuel pump.
Am I over thinking this?

I.D. is listed at 11/32
Is that 3/8 I.D or O.D.?

On the race car I had -8 from the cell to the filter and pump and then -6 to the carb and -4 for the return line. It got 6 mpg so I think those sizes can feed your 4.0.

The -AN number is the ID of the hose or fitting in 1/16" increments. A -8 is 8/16" or 1/2" ID. If Summit does not have what you want try Pegasus.

I've dicked with enough AN fittings over the years that I have a set of vice jaw blocks just for -AN fittings and they really make assemble easier. Also the best tape to use on the smaller hose (-4 will really want to unravel and splay out as soon as you cut it with the zizz wheel) is the reinforced clear packing tape with the fiber glass strands.

Like this.
