Hey guys, Last night I tried attaching some new after market stainless brake lines to the caliper and realized that the hole in the line does not match up directly to the hole in the bolt when attached. This is something new to me but I thought that the 2 should line up. Tried thinking of a couple of different ways to make things work (different sized brass washers etc) but could still not get it dialed in.

Today I went to the performance shop where I got them and the guy said that since there is a "groove" on the inside of the brake line (where the bolt goes through), the hole in the bolt can be pointing in any direction and pressue will push the fluid through.

Is this something to worry about? Any one else run in this situation? Any responce would be great.

Later

He is correct. You don't have to worry where the hole is. The groove inside will easily let the fluid through.
