I have to disagree on the double flare...Stainless lines require 37 degree flares and AN fittings. If you use 45 degree flares they won't seal against the ferrel properly and then they leak, but then you already know that. double flaring stainless is just too iffy. you may get a good flare and then you may not. the stuff is just too tough and wants to split. Get a 37 degree flaring tool from Speedway Auto for about 50.00 or so...thats my experience and nickels worth.......GlennK
