Re: can some teach me how to use a double flare tool??
I just did a brake line extension from my proportioning valve. I too tried to double flare with my set and the tube only slips down no matter how hard I tighten it. After calling up my expert on car matters (my know-it-all dad), he said he's used single flares on brake lines before with no problems. I did that, but haven't not driven on the street yet to see how it holds up. If I find I have to do a double flare, I'll see if Snap-On makes a double flare tool. Their stuff always works!
