Re: Copper fuel line leaking fitting - not a typical flare fitting

When the two sides of the fitting are completely tightened together the whole fitting can still spin fairly easily on the copper line. Can someone name this type of fitting and offer a possible solution. Thank you!!
Seems to me that the round compression part does not fully engage try shortening the end a bit sticks out to far and the Ball cannot slide more forward since it has already deeply impressed on the line
Good luck
