Jas, did the flaring tool do the double flare?

Umm, you better check the work done then. It is illegal to fit brake lines with a single flare for good reason. The single flare can split or crack (over time) and cause leaks with the obvious result. The double flare folds the tube inward kinda before the second step flares it out leaving 2 layers of metal that won't split or crack - much safer...

Clutch lines use a single flare and brakes lines use a double. As it indicates you have to use the flaring tool twice (with the correct shapes) to get for end formed correctly. Once you have the tool the line is cheap.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

With a double flare, you should have to use a small piece added to the flare tool to mushroom the end of the line, then flare it normally afterwards.

If you haven't done that, then you're asking for trouble, and it's also not legal.

Being relatively uneducated with car stuff I had to research to see what was being discussed. Found this on another forum and thought it may be handy to others so I have copied it across.


All brake flare fittings should be a double flare. Single don't support the pressures necessary.



Single flare is an outward bell in the end of the line. A double flare is a single with the lip rolled back inward.



A single flare would be what you have at Fig. 4 in the above diagram.

Here is a cross section of the 2 (Single at the top, doube at the bottom)



If its wrong at all just tell me and I will edit it out.


Cheers,
j

Just a small note Justin, the single flare does not get rolled at all (as is shown in figure 4) but maybe you are explaining that figure 4 is the starting point for a single flare...
