Depending on what valves you go with should determine the remainder of the fittings. On mine (the 1" valves with the 1" NPT inlet I used 1"NPT to 1/2"NPT reducer/bushing, 1/2"NPT to male 6AN, Female 6AN to 3/8 push-lok barb to attach to the hose.

Something to remember, if you want to convert AN to NPT (for size hose to use NOT thread pitch) take whatever the AN number is and put it over 16. Then reduce it down.

For example:

6AN = 6/16 (reduced = 3/8 ) 3/8" hose would be used here
4AN = 4/16 (reduced = 1/4 ) 1/4" hose would be used here
10AN = 10/16 (reduced = 5/8 ) 5/8" hose would be used here.

And so on....

I hope this helps.
