EDIT: OK, I think I was just confused on what you said at first. We are saying the same thing, but with different terminology. I hear flare and start thinking you're talking about a 45 or 37 degree internal female flare like the fitting I posted above. :facepalm: You are correct.

You are correct, the chamfer is NOT hard to add to the inside to mimic the factory lines and I had already planned on doing that.

Apparently you are cool without it though as everyone here has been doing it for years! Maybe they just have slow leaks or always air in the system.
Yup exactly! That's also what I plan on doing. From what Tom at earls told me it will hold but at a much lower pressure. He said if you were to smack a curb or introduce a shock load it would blow the fitting out, in addition once its cranked on you can't really remove it again.
