TH-350 Cooling Lines Flaring

Help

I am about to do flaring on 5/16 steel lines for my TH-350 trans to my new external trans cooler. Do I use a single or double flaring tool for this job? I know brake lines are double - what about trans lines? What is a typical pressure (psi) in a TH-350 trans cooling line under normal operating conditions?

Single is fine.
I use steel brake lines joined with brass.
Less than 20 psi. Remember lots of people used fuel line for trans hose for years and never blew any lines up.

I also use preformed, preflared brake lines from the auto parts stores for fuel and trans cooler lines, it's real cheap.
