Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

I recently bought the Goodridge SS front brake line kit and it's proving to be a chore to put them on. I've read all the posts and they aren't helping. First, in the kit, I received 3 banjo bolts (2 long with 2 holes in each of them and 1 short bolt with only 1 hole in it.) To me this seems backwards. Shouldn't I have received 2 short bolts with 1 hole and 1 long bolt with 2 holes? Can someone tell me which bolt goes where? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

I have never installed those but it sounds like they sent the wrong bolts.

Yes you should have 2 short single line bolts and 1 long double line bolt.

Re: Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

The 2 short single bolts connect to the calipers and the 1 one long double bolt connects the master cylinder. Someone screwed up your order...

Re: Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

yurp, sound like a screw-up, or a bolt-up possibly

2 short for the calipers, 1 longer one for the master cylinder.

Re: Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

Use your oem caliper banjo bolts with new copper washers on each side of the line fitting, be careful not to overtighten a banjo bolt as they can snap/break. The double line banjo bolt goes at the top for the master cylinder.

Re: Stainless Steel Brakeline Question

I appreciate all your responses. That's what I thought. I'm going to reuse my oem single holded banjo bolts and then use the new double (2 holed) banjo bolt. That's what you get when you order off ebay. Thanks again.
