ok to mix different type brake line fitting going into MC?

hi guys,

doing the S50 conversion and im using a smaller booster and MC from a different model car.

my bmw brakeline has like a mushroom looking end of the fitting going into the MC but the brake line that is meant to go into the new MC has the inverted type.

question is, can i safely bolt in my old brake line (i have put it on and tightened it, although the thread didnt go all the way in but its tight nonetheless), or should i make new line which has mushroom fitting on one end and inverted end on the other??

thanks

Are you talking about double and bubble flares? If so, no. They are not interchangeable. The threads don't seal the lines, the flare does. Cut and do new flares, or just get/make new lines.
