I wanted to ask this group what they thought about using compression
fittings to splice into a long brake line versus getting a flare tool
to prepare the connection for a flare fitting?
Is a compression fitting suitable for the task, and legal?
I'm sure that a flare fitting is more durable and avoids any issues
with rust on the outside of the lines. Where I would splice into looks
to be pretty clean, though. My mechanic said he would just use flare
fittings and splice it into the existing line, so that's what I plan
to do. I only need to determine how to splice the lines.
