  • -6AN wrench doesn't fit the hose end nut.

    -6AN wrench doesn't fit the Earls hose end side. What size AN wrench do I need for this end?

    As you've found out, the AN wrench is for the B-nut, not the socket.
    -6AN is an 11/16" wrench. The next size up -8AN, is a 7/8" wrench.
    When assembling the hose end, it's common practice to wrap the
    socket or wrench/vise with masking tape, to avoid scratching the fitting. (AN Wrenches) (B-Nut Size Chart) (Protective Vise Jaws) (B-nut vs Socket Sizes)
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.
