Sealing washers on front brakes
87s4 with big reds

ive seen and heard two things.

#1. 1 sealing ring between the banjo bolt and the fitting as illustrated


#2. 2 sealing rings...1 between the banjo bolt and the fitting.....and....the fitting and the caliper block.


the WSM shows 1 sealing ring in the image yet describes 2 needed in the text?

Is that one on each side L and R....or ...2 on each side for total of 4.


part #14

I've always found, and used, 2 on each side of each banjo bolt.

PET wrong AFAIK.

What is the tq spec on that banjo bolt. I know it is treaded into the aluminum caliper.

Thanks guys. Just ordered a set of SS lines from Rog. 34yrs old would probably be a good idea...its all open now anyway. Just hope the lines break free without any drama.
