72 Brake Caliper
#1
Does the bolt that holds the hose to the caliper on a 72 Mach 1 have a copper washer on the bolt head and on the bolt after it goes through the connection on the hose before it goes into the caliper? I think it's called a banjo bolt? I only had the one copper washer and it's leaking between the connection on the hose and the caliper.

If I remember correctly you are right there are two washers one the goes between the caliper and the hose and another between the hose and the head of the bolt.

Figures. I had lost the bolt and Mike from Motorcity Mustangs found me one. He's found me all kind of parts they don't repo yet. He sent the one copper washer with the bolt but I had lost both washers when I lost the bolt. I tried a regular steel washer but it will not work.

Yeah it has to be copper because it is softer than steel meaning it seals better.

Yep, that was it. Put a copper washer on it and no more leaks.
