    Line lock/ brake line ?

    I bought a moroso linelock noid and have a simple question when run new lines myself can i use a male fitting with compresson on the other side instead of using a bubble flare on he abs block and the master ? The reason i ask is becouse no one seems to know what a bubble flare is and is almost impossible to buy a tool arond here and off the net they are crazy . If anyone knows where i can buy the prebent lines or lines with the flares already on them and i can bend them myself let me know or if i can use compression that would be great !!! Also what size would that be in a male compression fitting? isnt the front line from the master to the abs block 3/16?
    Thanks for any info you can give me

    The bubble flare your referring to is called a ISO flare. And there is NO tool to buy cause it's not a flare you can do yourself without VERY expensive tooling.
    ALL "new" style brake systems that are ABS use a ISO flare on the brake lines. What you need to do is go the the scrap yard with a line wrench and a tubing cutter.
    I cut pieces off the cars that have lines that are easy to get to. Then those ends you get with the flares you splice into with a regular double flare union.
    ALL fittings going into the stock ABS lines will need a ISO "Nipple" flare.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
