hi again all:) I got all the parts to do new calipers on my front end. What size ishte banjobolt behnd brake hose line? I dont know ifi have the socket or wrench size. Iplanned on usng a small 1/4 drive ratchet. thye make them up too 14 mm ive seen. anything past that isa 3/8 drive, and seems too add too much torque then. r just using the approprate size wrench... what size?

Also when you refer to bolt sizes, Merkava seems to refer to the thread diameter while you want the head diameter. Drive size has little to do with torque. IE a 1/4" drive might break first before the item you're working on. You want a bunch of leverage for this job to break it loose, and to be able to crush the copper gasket.
