Steel oil cooler line fitting

So the seal on one of my steel oil lines wont seal up and shes weeping oil. It's been replaced (the fitting) and there is still a problem. I know I could take it to a shop and have them re-flare it or something...but I would just assume do that after I've replaced them.

So the question is; Who makes the best GD cooler lines? I've searched most of the threads but to be honest they all vary too much on line chat so ya know thats a lot of reading.....dozens upon dozens of conversations. So if you've been using something for a couple of years and it hasn't failed please let me know....this is my last leak then I'm drip free (yeah right)! Thanks!!

Did you check the "O" ring? Don't have an old "O" ring stuck inside do you? I have had the "O" rings go bad and have had some get bound causing leaks. Just a thought.

I had to mill down my fitting to get it to tighten correctly. There was too much play in the connection. Only a couple of mill and it fit great.
