I didn't remember if a copper washer was originally used...the car has been apart for some time now. The threaded tip of the new line seems to have a concave tip that seems to emulate the normal flare that would be on any other brake line fitting into the brass union. I will call Moss and see what they have to say.

Dave, that's the problem with Moss. Its products
are not quality assured. For example, I ordered a drain petcock---and it
leaked. Nice looking brass. Pure crap.

I tried to install the Moss stainless covered brake hose into the 3-way
brass union on my BJ8 rear axle. The threaded portion on the new hose is 1/2
inch long. It bottoms out into the union before it ever seats internally. The
union has a measured depth of approx 0.600", which means I really need a
thread depth on the hose of greater than that.
I have not contacted Moss yet. Has anyone else had this issues?
