Do your lines rundown at both sides of the frame? We have been taking a M10 bolt and coppper washer and sealing off the origional inlet and carefuly removing the piston with blow gun, drilling and tapping a 1/8" pipe thread hole center of the piston. Then we put a 1/8" pipe to 3/16" flair fitting and run hard line and put a tee where it is handy to run back to supply. It cleans up all the lines and every thing is held tight to the housing. Rebuild kits are cheap and a good time to do this also.

We have run banjo fittings for years on Modifieds. Never had one leak. I also have plumbed several other race cars this way with no problems...The only thing you might run into is a clearance problem at the caliper. Some banjo's are bigger then others and the caliper might need to be ground down a bit for the banjo bolt to seal....Any questions just pm me.

I have always used the banjo fittings and never had a problem with them.
