Brake line attachment leak

12377 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  FMTRVT
After installing a new rear brake caliper on my 2001 drw f350, there is a brake fluid leak where the brake line is attached to the caliper. Was I supposed to use some kind of sealant in there to seal it? Or is the surface of the new caliper defective where the brake line is attached? Or is there a piece of dirt or sand in there? Any ideas? I don't think that there is a little gasket or seal that goes in there.

I've re-used them several times as well - not every time have they sealed. But, when the old ones do seal, the new copper seals go into my spare part pile (especially since these are getting hard to find sold individually).
