The hose and fittings that are commonly used in performance automotive applications originally were developed for the aerospace industry. The connections used between a hose end and and adapter fitting are now generically called "AN" connections. The AN standard (AN stands for Army/Navy) was originally developed by the government and was universally utilized on all military applications to provide a broad range of interchangeability.

When this system was first established it was based on metal tubing sizes. The AN standard assigned a dash number to each different size metal tubing that was used in connection with the fittings. These same numbers were also assigned to the hose and the respective hose ends and fittings that interface with each hose size. The numbers given earlier for hose sizes offered by Russell are the AN dash numbers assigned to these hoses. You are probably accustomed to thinking in terms of a 3/8" fuel hose or a 1/2" heater hose. Following is a chart that provides AN hose size numbers and their nominal equivalent size in inches. The reason we say "nominal" size is because this dimension refers to the tubing size.
