quick 300zx brake swap question

I am working on the 300zx brake swap, and I have one question, where you have the 10 inch brake line that screwes into the caliper, does it just screw in, or should there be a copper washer similar to the front CJ calipers?

Mine didn't/don't have crush washers and work fine.

I just almost finished up this project finally and I was bleeding the brakes. Where the Nissan 10 inch flex brake line attaches to the caliper it is leaking around the threads. It does not appear to be a compression fitting. How is this supposed to be sealed properly so there are no leaks

Shouldn't it have a copper crush washer between the bolt head and the steel block on the hose were they mate together?

I agree there should be something and a copper crush washer is the likely solution. Is that a standard part

Take the bolt to the parts store and they should be able to find one on the shelf that fits.

Followed a few write ups and going to add a few pics of the ebrake cable setup as none of them seem to cover that well. None of the write ups mention a copper washer as I started my conversion with all new parts. A junk yard setup would have it installed allready. I am just making sure that's how Nissan did it
