LHD hydraulic clutch hose question

What's the specification of the end of the flexible hose that goes into the clutch slave cylinder? I'm having troubles finding one, because what I pulled out is an M10x1 male with a convex flare, and all the ones I'm finding in local stores are M10x1 with an inverted/concave flare. But maybe what I have isn't a standard convex flare but an ISO bubble flare in a solid fitting. I've looked at the relevant datsun1200 tech wiki page, and at least one of the parts listed there is an inverted flare on the slave cylinder end (coz I found it at a local store.) In my particular situation I could just run a new hard line all the way to the clutch slave cylinder, but even then I need to know what the right flare geometry is.
Suggestions/ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Cool, thank you. I'll try the local parts stores first.

I have an early A12 engine in my Triumph Spitfire. A friend blew it up: #2 conn rod seized. As y'all know, it's cheaper to find a new used engine than to get the crank reground, replace all the bearings, get the conn rods machined, so that's what I did. I found an A14 with an automatic transmission hanging off the back (sweet, because now I have an auto bellhousing for maybe someday building a toyota or ford-based 5-speed since I cannot find a 60-series 5-speed for under $1k.) SO. I bought an Exedy clutch, and disassembled/removed the flex plate and had a heart attack when the flywheel wouldn't fit on the end of the crank, read the datsun1200 forum and found out there's a spacer on there, removed that, now the flywheel fits and the exedy clutch parts all fit: splines are right, clutch housing bolts into the flywheel.
What doesn't fit is the bronze bushing. I measure the four-speed 56-series input shaft at almost exactly 12mm in diameter, which should be the bushing's ID, and the crank recess at very close to 17mm, supposedly the bushing's OD. Well, the bushing is actually 15mm ID, 21mm OD. Not even close.

This is why I have a metal lathe and a pile of oilite bronze.

However, I'd like to know what the numbers _should_ be, particularly what outer diameter the bushing is supposed to be, preferably to a thousandth of an inch/0.02mm.

Backup plan is remove the old bushing from the old crankshaft, but man I don't want to do that if I can help it. Anyone know what size the bushing should be? I've looked at ones on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/DATSUN-1200-P ... SAN-Genuine-/221286944864) and they indicate 12.10 ID, 17.00 OD, but before I get myself in trouble I figured I'd ask to make sure those are the right numbers. (and maybe I'll just buy that one.)

Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them out. It's particularly useful to know that I'm not actually tightening the bolt when I try to loosen it.

I have a tired A12 (in a Triumph Spitfire) and would like to find a used A15. I can find remanufactured ones for $1700 with shipping but am hoping someone has an old tired A15 sitting around unused that needs a good home for a bit less.

Also looking for a 60-series transmission, unsurprisingly, as I have a 56 four-speed right now.

Any leads would be very welcome.

I have a (new to me) A12 engine and am trying to get the timing cover off. This appears to require removal of the crank pulley because of the studs that go through the timing belt cover. Any suggestions about how to get that bolt loose? Is it left- or right-hand thread? I'm reluctant to jam a screwdriver in the flywheel teeth for fear of breaking one off.
