Copper brake line washer

Recommended Posts

One of the tasks in reviving my  triple black 16v TC  was replacing the front brake hoses and calipers.  Parts were readily available and the job seemed to go well, including the bleeding.  Then I noticed a leak at the lower left hose connection.  Tightened it up as much as I dared and still it leaked.  So I checked back on our site and found a post from Reaper about the copper washers supplied with the calipers being too thin.  That was the culprit.  I installed thicker washers and no more leak.  Parts guy said, "Oh yeah, that happens a lot".  So Reaper - many thanks.  That would not have occurred to me.
