Q & A

What's in the Box

Our 3/16" stainless steel tubing is made from 304 grade (rated at 6000 psi) which is double annealed to allow easy flaring.

NOTE: This line is intended to be used in conjunction with 37 degree AN # 3 style fittings which make use of a single flare. Stainless steel line will not work with 45 degree double flare 3/8"-24 flare nuts. We strongly suggest that the 37 degree single flare (flaring tool # 910-89524) be used when flaring this line for the AN # 3 tube nuts and sleeves.

Learn more about flaring lines and how to select proper automotive fittings by reading our tech article. The Principles of Automotive Fittings.

Won't corrode, looks good, lasts forever

April 03, 2015
This brakeline looks nice on a fenderless car, but in any case it won't corrode. Another plus - if you are very careful, you can bend with a box end wrench. Since I'm using this line with AN fittings I installed them first, flared the tubing, and then ran a 7/16" box end wrench over the nut and coaxed the line to the shape needed. A trick that works for me is to bend a piece of 12 gauge wire from romex cable to the shape I want first. .When it fits nicely, it's easy to duplicate in this tubing.
Pros:
  • Easy to bend
Yes, I recommend this product.

good stuff

March 10, 2015
Used this on my latest project mostly for the rust resistance. While harder to bend and flare than regular steel, its no big deal once you figure it out. Definitely don't use a tubing cutter as it work hardens it and won't flare well. I used a hacksaw, filed square against an old set of flaring bars, deburred, then flared. I used the Ridgid flaring tool that Speedway also sells.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Highly Recommended

Absolutely will not double flare, which is noted so don't even try. I've been able to single 45 degree flare fine. I've used this line on Audi R8 race cars, ABS installs on twin turbo Porsche race cars and full brake line installs on high end classic cars. No problems!
Yes, I recommend this product.

we usually put a double flare on the tubing, will this product work on a standard 1988 Jeep Wrangler wheel cylinder and brake caliper?

I've found that this will NOT double flare. I've been through about 8 rolls to date and if an inverted flare/nut needs to be used I've been very successful with just 45 degree single flaring. With this in mind, yes it will work fine up to wheel cylinders because they are fix mounted. However a caliper needs to have a flexible brake hose over to the frame where this hard line will meet it.

This stainless tubing part # 6178510 will not work with a double flare. It is suggested that you use an AN 37degree flare with that tubing.

37 Degree Flaring Tool for Stainless Steel Line
(Part #91089524)
                        

This is the best flaring tool for the money we have found. It has a feed screw with a hardened flaring cone eccentrically mounted in needle bearings which produces a rolling action for even metal flow. This provides uniform wall thickness without galling. It will put a 37 degree flare in 3/16”, 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8”, ½”, 5/8” and 3/4” tubing. We recommend this tool when flaring 3/16” stainless steel brake line.

  • Provides smooth, uniform flares with minimum effort
  • Feed screw handle requires less motion and effort than standard handle
  • Flares steel, stainless steel, hard copper and brass thru wall thickness of .035"
