I just want to confirm this type of fitting will seal properly with the stock prop. valve. when going to 3AN line.

AN to Bubble Flare Male Caliper Fittings
-3AN x 10mm x 1.0

Is the bubble flare what I want? I also saw inverted flare.

if the fitting is to go into a prop valve, you want the inverted flare

if the fitting is to go into an -AN fitting, you want the 37* flare (the first fitting to the left)

the bubble flare protrudes out like so (pictured on the right)

my apologies, i made an error

you are right, the second image you have posted does show the inverted flare.

inverted is what you want.
bubble isnt used at all on honda's

just double 45 on the brake line itself

and the inverted flare on the fitting.

i think bubble is used on domestic vehicles but someone correct me if i'm wrong
actually made a thread like that, helped a friend out with his brake lines
