    Just got done bleeding the barakes for the 14b disk conversion. I had a small leak on both Banjo bolts, snugged them down some more and it seems to have stopped, but time will tell. What is the torque setting for this, (and please do not tell me to tighten them till it stops).

    Are you using an old or new banjo bolt? Over-torquing can cause leaking also.

    Those are new also, they are not bottoming out either in the caliper, I torqued them in 5 lb increments, at 20 it was a drip, 25 they weeped, and at 30 it stopped, and after the test drive I checked again and it was OK. It is a new torque wrench not a super expensive one, but not a cheapy either. I was really pumping on the brakes to get the pressure up to check for any leaks also.
