Just for Chris' reference, there are two primary standards in the U.S. 
for such fittings.  JIC, which is a 37 deg. fitting (typically used on 
hydraulic equipment and aircraft), and SAE, which is 45 deg (mostly 
production automotive use).  Mixing the two will not give the proper 
interference fit to form a good seal, as Mark notes above.
