Default -8 AN O-ring Fitting Question

Im am piecing together my fuel system. Last things needed is the fuel lines and fitting. Ive been racking my brain to try to get this done right the first time.

Im using a QuickFuel 30-175 billet pump. It has an external bypass for its built in regulator that I plan to use. I have a handfull of other non-related questions to this system im building, but I just discovered the pumps (3) -8 outlets (IN, OUT, BYPASS) has an "O-ring" type AN ORB outlet. The bypass outlet will be close to the trunk floor and driver spring mount so I needed a 45 degree coming out of he pump.

I cant seem to find a -8 to -8 Oring 45 degree fitting. My question is, can I use a regular -8 to -8 fitting, and just supply an o-ring over it? I know the Oring made fittings are not flared, their cut. This doesnt seem to be an issue since the ports on the pump are so deep, the flare will not be in the way.
