    I'm looking to hard line my oil tank vent because the hose would be too short to bend where I need it. Going to hard line, but for the life of me I can't fine -12 (3/4") Aluminum Tubing!

    I found Fragola sells the -12 Tube Nuts and Sleeve, but where is the tube? All I could find was some dorman tube for AC, but its like 0.080" wall and I think something more malleable (.035" or so)

    Thanks

    How about using copper tubing? I don't know what the wall thickness is. Just a thought.

    No....-12 is a common automotive race fitting. There's got to be something other then indoor wiring tube Benders. Besides I noticed all of that tube and copper tube I saw at lowes is advertised as ID.

    By definition tubing is sized by od and pipe by ID. Lowes is retarded. I agree with above post, 0.035" wall tubing in a soft metal is asking for trouble - especially with something as big as 3/4"...

    Richard it's just a vent though, nothing but escaping air in the oil tank
