While it doesn’t state so, this is a 2-piece “swivel” fitting so don’t be surprised. Talking to manufacturer, the two-piece swivel fitting is required for aviation applications because the male side is allowed to swivel (or rotate) after locking into the male fitting you have inserted into female side. The female side then is allowed to turn around the male fitting you have inserted. If it wasn’t two part swivel, the mating surfaces would score each other as you tightened down, increasing risk of leak. So two piece swivel, C431-4, is what you want for aviation.

Q: Is this a flare to flare fitting or does it require an O-ring in the -4 female to -4 male flare fitting?

This does not require an O-Ring. When you screw this together, it should be able to seal itself just fine.

Q: Is the C431-4 a female -4 flare to a male -3 flare?

Per the listed chart, that is correct. C431-4 has a -4 female, and -3 male thread.

Q: is there a -6 female to -8 male fitting?

Yes, our part number 04-02101.
