The coupling bolt on the pipe just
turns and does not "bite" into the 4-way union threads.
It's not striped! The the nut and perhaps the flare have spread due to too
much tightening. You can try reducing the nuts shank by carefully squeezing
it with a pair of smooth jaw pliers. If you belong to NAMGAR there was a
tech article on it about 10 years ago. If you've got NAMGAR's book, I am
pretty sure it's in there.

Yep, it's on page 300 of the NAMGAR tech tips book.  If you don't have the
tech tips book, maybe you have Volume 25/Number 1 of MGA! and you can see
the original tech tip, from Blake, I might add.
Thanks Blake.
