flare to flare elbow fitting

I have a sbc 350 and am using a stock mechanical fuel pump with 3/8 inverted flare female fitting on the output port. It's a Carter pump purchased at NAPA.

I found a brass flare to flare elbow fitting with 45* flare male threads on each end. It's made by a company called WATTS with a part #A-169.

Can I use this elbow between the fuel pump and a 3/8 steel brake line which has a female tube nut.


Let me rephrase the question.

First off, if you click on the link and enter the part #A-169 in their SEARCH it will show you a picture of the fitting in question.

I know that an SAE 45* flare female fitting has a 45* angle and an SAE 45* INVERTED flare female fitting has a 42* angle.

What's the difference between their male counterparts, since each of the males has a 45* angle?
