    Autozone might have one, if it's an emergency, use a ball bearing.

    The difference is in the flare. 37* is the flare for AN fittings. 45* is the standard flare(aka inverted flare) found on most brake lines. There is also a bubble flare found on some lines.

    Like the brake line running out of the master cylinder. Bubble flare on my 94 Ranger. Ask me how I know. LOL


    Why doesnt the OP just get a standard flare to An(37 flare) fitting?



    They also have ones that you can clip onto a tab. That's how I plumbed my brakes. I ran a hard line with an inverted flare to one of these adapters with the clip recess in them... and then ran a -3 AN flex line to a -3 banjo bolt at the caliper.

    I would need that to a female AN.. I'll look into it. I have already bought all the AN stuff I need so I may just buy the 37* flaring tool if I cant find one to borrow.

    ok so i searched it, i use the 45 degree to flare, i dont use those little double flare thigns though, i just use the actual flare tool pointed piece and just tighten down and make a single flare and it works good, we have used it on trophy trucks and 2 prerunners we built for jesse jones and jeff darland and the one we just built for craid potts and it never has leaked on me, cody call me and i will explain it better odnt buy that thing it cost to much money

    Damn really? I was always told they will leak, but good to know, because I have a 45 degree flare tool, and no 37 LOL.
