To Flare or Not to Flare ?

I'm running hard line (fuel) from my carb to the fuel pump. I'm using an Edelbrock Filter with -6AN fittings. I'm using a Russell compression fitting to connect the filter to the hard line. The question is do I need to flare the hard-line or will the compression fitting do the job.

I assume (there's that work again) that if I have to flare, I will need to use a 37 degree flare because it is an AN Fitting.

Any help would be really appreciated.

I had the same issue and I went and bought a good 37 degree flaring tool.
Works great ... and makes the connection leak free but still serviceable. You can take it apart and put it back together ... with no leaks.

re:To Flare or Not To Flare

Thanx for the quick response. That's the direction I was leaning, but if I come home with one more tool I'll be sleeping in the garage. Although Father's day is this Saturday ....hmmmmm

My wife says I never met a tool I did not want to own.

I shopped online and found a Imperial brand 37 degree flaring tool for cheap money. I got mine off eBay ... for about 1/5 of the new price. I see them for 10 to 15 dollars ... every now and then.





But I was in NO HURRY ... I borrowed a friends a couple of times ... and seen the need ... so I just watch and waited until a good deal came along with low,low shipping.
