How to Use Our 37 Degree Flaring Tool- Tech Talk

5/4/2020
Tags: Videos, Tech

In this Tech Talk, Charles walks you through how to use Speedway Motors 37 Degree Flaring Tool. Before you start, put your tube nut and sleeve on to the brake line. Then you want to loosen the grip on the tool and slide the brake line in and set it even with the top of the die for a standard sized flare. You'll center that up and tighten the grip down, making sure that it lines up with the lines on the tool. Tighten it down and you can back it off. Repeat the process for the other side. For more details, watch the video or read the transcript below!

Charles: "Hey guys. Today we're gonna show you how to use our 37 degree flaring tool on some steel brake line here. We've got some AN fittings we're going to use today as well, so let's get started. First thing on the flaring tool, it's got multiple options here for brake line. We're going to be using the smallest here, this 3/16ths. So you want to loosen this up here and it actually locks into these divots here on the side. So loosen that up and slide the brake line in and with the brake line you're gonna want to actually open that up a little bit."

"You're going to want to set it about even with the top of the die. That's going to give you a pretty standard sized flare. If you need a little bit larger OD on the flare, you'll want to push the brake line out above this top surface here a little bit. If you need a little bit less of an OD, just do the reverse and drop it down below that top surface. So for here we'll go ahead and do a standard sized flare. You'll center that up and tighten this down and this is actually what tightens the line into the die like so. And then go ahead and I'll start tightening this down. And I always like to check to make sure that it does line up. It looks like it's doing a pretty good job here as well. So from there just go ahead tighten it down just like so. And you can go ahead and back it off. And one thing to note too, normally you'll want to put your tube nut and sleeve on to the brake line first, but in this case since it's a straight line I decided to do that after the fact."

"So once you get that all the way released, go ahead loosen this guy, slide right down like so, spread it, and there you go It's got a nice 37 degree flare on the end there. What you'll do next, you want to go ahead and put your tube sleeve on, then your sleeve nut. And that'll get you, you're in there. And then from there you can go ahead and do the other end. Now with the other end you'll want to go ahead and slide your tube nut on first because it goes over your sleeve. Slide your sleeve on. You want to make sure when you slide your sleeve on, that you get the flared side of that sleeve. So it's actually gonna be pushing against the flare when you get it on there."

"And from there go ahead and put it back in the die just like so. Wiggle it down into place there. Set the height. Again you know if you did that one and you wanted a little less, go ahead and recess it. And vice versa, if you need a little bit more on the OD, do another standard size flare here hold that tight slide this up. You can kind of feel that clamp down on that line and you can go ahead and do your second flare. Hope you learned a little bit about our flaring tool today thanks so much for watching."
