Re: Metric Flaring Tool...????
If you are looking for a good flaring kit , go find a Matco salesman or go to their website . I paid about $60 for mine , works absolutely better than the Blue Point or any other kit I've seen yet , and I've used almost every brand made professionally . Matco's is the only one I've seen that uses an interlocking head on the flare frame , so it stays centered on the tube keeping it from making off-center flares which are the cause of most line failures and leaks . BTW, the Suzuki's use a standard double 45* flare, 3/16" tube size with 10mm nuts . The good oem style nuts are very hard to find , do not use the ones from Napa that are blueish purple in color and have an extra nose on them , they do not work and will crack . Hope this helps,
