What flare is used on the brake line for reliant? Single or double?

Depends what’s already on the existing pipe; there are variations. Replicate what you remove is the only answer.

I believe it is the double flare as seem to remember the term when I fitted a whole new braking system on the Rialto but I will have to look at my notes from the time if I can find them. :?

I remember the Eastman company had a video to accompany the brake flaring tool they sell.

Thank you all for your help. I have to change the brake lines as they are perished. Can't see what flare goes into the fittings until it comes off.
