    Friends! I use these fittings, once installed, when installing and tightening the twisted tube shown in Photo pria yellow arrow is difficult to remove, it's all distorted. Though when trying to unscrew it, it is very difficult, it stops spinning! problematic nut shown in the figure with a red arrow. also manifest themselves and other dimensions such as -4
    can I have something wrong?


    Sincerely.

    the threads are scored or it is cross threaded. Be prepared to replace that and whatever it screws onto.

    I have seen these corrode so bad the nut (when backed off) twisted the elbow part.

    I will try to explain the way!
    When you install the fitting, I tighten the screws when tightening the nut fitting received in the course of the rotation curve of the key. When filming, the nut is not cool, not because of the fact that the thread is damaged, but simply is not turning on the fitting, bites her. if you turn the hose with it's easy to unscrew! thread is not damaged!

    The problem in the mounting nut on the fitting.
    may need to lubricate something?

    When its tight its not supposed to rotate the flare on the tube locks onto the flare of the fitting.. The fitting should look like below.

    I think Egor is saying is when he tries to tighten the nut, the tube will not rotate inside of it.....that it will easily screw on if he turns the entire assembly together.
    Egor, can you slide the nut up the tube a little to see if it is damaged?
