Default Brake line leaking after new lines

Hey guys,

I swapped out all my brake lines and the rear left one will not seal up to where it attaches to the frame no matter what I try and do. I have spent 2 hours trying to get it to seal. I suspect the new line was faulty and it it will not seat properly on the line. Ive trying tightening and loosening, clocking the connection all the different ways with no luck. Short of getting another line is there any tricks that you guys have to get these flared fittings to seal?

Ugh. haha


Thanks

Mitch

Thread sealer might work. You need to test if it's impervious to brake fluid and whether it would hold up to the hydraulic pressure.
