The flared end usually doesn't get messed up. However the brass fitting that seals against it may be off slightly. It sounds like the SS line is the one that may be not correct. You can try smoothing out the flared end with some emry paper. Also look at the compression fitting and check it to make sure it's not scratched up. I had a MC that was like this......short of pulling the compression fitting out and redoing it.....not much I could do.
I think getting a new nut / compression fitting (if they are one in the same) is my only solution now. I'm thinking a brake shop can just cut off the nut, and reinstall another one on the hard line end... or at least that's my plan now. Thanks,
