Question about the Crush Washers
HI have done the brakes now few times with this one. First time, I got fluid in the old pads, so I changed my new pads, bleed, done, it brakes really nice.
After couple of days, I saw a small leak on the left side banjo, I said, sh..t I did not properly tighten it, so I did some more, I went a bit pass the spec torque and BAAAAAAAAMMM, broke the bolt, thanks god it did not mess up the threads.
I replaced it with another banjo and reuse the old crush washers (wrooonng), again it worked flawlessly for couple of days, after few days, leaking again.
I finally got the new crush washers, question is, the sides are different, one side is completely flat and the other one is a bit curvy. So, how does it go on?
Flat side against bolt head (curvy against line) - line - flat side against line (curvy against caliper) ?
or the opposite:
Curvy side against Bolt head (flat against line) - line - curvy side against line (flat against caliper)
Help would be much appreciate!!.
Just do not want to have to do them again, or mess up the new crush washers.
