The gator gripper I tried first is the exact one in that picture. I think it stripped the threads the first time
I tried to tighten it. Anything past finger tight caused it to pop apart , I think because of the e stripped thread.
Now I'm just hoping that there is enough tubing that's not mangled on my 3/8 feed line (part of the braided line) after unsuccessfully trying to flare the end and i hope now that a compression fitting will grab. I am using new brake line coming out of the filter running up the side wall so no pitting there. I only tried it on the stainless side so far anyway.
Ill try again and let you guys know what worked and what didn't.
Ill have to get a new fitting because of this one being stripped . The fitting didnt break it would just pop the threads. I never got a chance to tighten it.
Those AN lines are ridiculously expensive so im trying what I can first.
