Why not just bubble flare the tubing and use the stock type male thread nut?

Not sure I follow what your saying?...
Are you talking about trying to connect to the 3an fitting?.
that was incorrectly installed...

Or putting the flared tube right in the side of the valve?

This is a bad pick of the side of the prop valve...
The flare is opposite so in sense
The open ends of the tube and valve would be ... < >...
That fitting would be the connection between the flares.... nut on the tube..
.... < <-> >-...

No. Ditch the -3 AN fitting.

 

Install the male thread 10mm tube nut on the tubing then flare the tubing, but not inverted flare, with a bubble flare.

3an already gone.. and what you said makes more sense.... I had to look up how to make a bubble flare though .... seems straight forward.... looks like it would work....
I'll give it a try... thanks

Did better one the passenger side than I did the drivers.... but the drivers was the most messed up.... maybe I should have started with a different one.... oh well
Slight learning curve. ... top ones were alittle trickier... bottoms were much easier...
