Is the manager not doing something up to the standards?

Not so much that as him and the owner want to make it look like we don't work on cars here bc corporate reps don't understand what it takes to do what we do. Wants everything overly tidy, clean, and "pretty" organized instead of practically organized.

Exactly, we don't get paid to sit and clean excessively. We spend just enough time organizing and cleaning to make it efficient to work.

Makes me wonder if its the managers belief the big wigs expect it to be super clean vs what they actually expect.

The corporate reps expect too much. We had a 55 gal drum in the back of the shop that we put scrap into when we do jobs and the last time they came through they told my managers it was "unsightly" and to get rid of it. So now it sits outside where they cant see it when they do the walkthrough...

On Monday I asked about fuel rail fitting and was told it is 1/4 SAE or -4 AN. As AN fittings are 37 degree flare I am assuming that is the correct SAE flare angle to use. Have discovered there is both SAE designation with 37 degree flares as well as 37 degree flares like JIC and AN. Just wondered if anyone in here could verify 37 degree flare is correct.

To adapt my fuel pressure sensor to my fuel rail I am looking at using a 1/4 SAE 37 flare female to 1/4 NPT male straight with a 1/4 female NPT to 1/8 female NPT. The only issue I see is it isn't a swivel fitting and will probably end up oriented in the wrong direction to get it tightened correctly.

My understanding is that they are all the same spec in terms of thread pitch and taper but AN is held to a higher quality standard. I know JIC and AN are basically interchangeable. I used the fuel pressure test port to feed a wet nitrous system before and it didnt leak, so i know -4AN works.

Yeah that's what I saw when reading up on it as well. JIC and AN are identical nominally with AN being more stringent/expensive. I found a fitting that will work well as long as it doesn't make the assembly stick up too high as it is just a straight fitting.

I just don't care for the look of the front end on them.Everything else looks damn good, but they messed up the front end.
