Aluminum tank fittings

I'm installing an aluminum diesel fuel tank and want to have the fittings that screw into the tank to be aluminum, e.g. elbows, suction tube fittings, bolts for cover plate and barbed hose fitting. Any ideas on a source?

Re: Aluminum tank fittings

Walt,

No personal experience with the vendor, but in MaineSail's narrative on his diesel tank replacement he stated that he got his aluminum fittings from Luther's Welding in Bristol RI.

Thanks for both. Luther's said they'd take care of me.
