Brake hoses leaking
Well, I decided to to do it right when the pads wore out on the old Dakota. Lot of corrosion, uneven wear, etc. etc. so I took it down to the spindles, replacing hubs/rotors, bearings, calipers and hoses. Pretty straightforward R&R.
Problem is both calipers are leaking at the banjo fitting mating the hoses to the calipers. Made sure to use new copper gaskets, and even bought new banjo bolts. Right side really only "weeps", but is definitely leaking, while the left side drips heavily.
I'm no stranger to swinging wrenches, but I'm not familiar with this specific type of connection. The repair manual doesn't mention anything beyond "reassemble", and it doesn't look like there should be any sort of additional sealer (e.g. Permatex) used here, but...
Any suggestions for getting a nice, tight, dry connection here would be appreciated.
