Flaring Brake Lines -- Odd Shape?
I recently attempted to replace the Load Sending Proportioning Valve in teh rear of a 1994 Taurus sedan. Unfortunately, my brake lines are badle rusted, and chose to "Twist Off" and break rather than "unthread" out. I tried replacing the lines with those from a local parts store, but the fittings are different. Metric? So I re-used the original fittings from the busted-off brake lines. But I still have a problem with them leaking. I think it's because I am using a double-flaring tool, and the original flares (from Ford) are different. They are not 45°. Their flares are shaped more like a "dome."
How can I achieve this style of flare?
Does someone sell a tool?
Does FORD (or any aftermarket company) sell replacement brake lines that are pre-bent with the correct fittings??
Thanks in advance.
