Default Re: Flared copper washers for gaskets?

Copper lines: Copper will work harden IF it is allowed to flex or vibrate. In the 50's, etc., most production cars had a small copper line from the engine to the oil pressure gauge, I was a truck mechanic from 1956 to 1976 and never saw one crack or break. Trucks used copper air-brake lines, etc. etc. Copper has gotten a bad reputation, undeservedly! The bad reputation has been passed on by those that have never been associated with it.
