3 AN or 4 AN

Good morning all. I was trying to figure if this was engine or interior related. I decided to put it here because it's more directed to the gauge. I'm putting the (stock) 4 gauge cluster in my 69 console. I am going to use a braided oil pressure line to the gauge from the back of the intake manifold. Am I going to need a 3 AN or 4 AN line? It looks like the fitting on back of the console oil gauge is pretty small, so I'm guessing 3 AN but not sure.

Thanks
Rick

Re: 3 AN or 4 AN

I would use a 2AN. The fitting on the gauge will need to adapted to AN too.

AN lines are in 1/16" increments.
As said above ,-2 is 1/8", which is the size of the line for the gauge

I have been looking most of the day to find the suggested braided line with a 1/8" tube size. I couldn't find anything anywhere that list a 1/8 tube size in the description, so clearly I'm missing something. Can any of you share a link where I can buy the braided oil line and adapter fitting for the back of the gauge.

Thanks
