I need to make some new brake lines to accommodate a proportioning valve, but i cant seem to get a clear answer on the type of flare to use. am i correct in saying a male fitting requires an SAE single flare and a female fitting requires a double flare.
I'm looking at getting this tool and want to make sure its the right one.

Yep and that tool will do exactly what you want.

Make sure you use Kunifer pipe rather than copper or steel

Double flare on all kunifer/copper lines, single flares are only used on steel lines.
