    Peter, It's time to work on my own stuff for a while. I have so many things started and nothing finished.

    Re: Disc Brake \"Close Out\"

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I have a question. I want to buy a set of these, before they're all gone, but I don't actually have the 14BFF yet /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I see I have to pick either a 10mm or 7/16 banjo bolt. First of all, I don't actually know what a banjo bolt is. Secondly, if I just pick one, and I'm wrong, is it hard to switch it to the appropriate one? Thank you for any assistance you (or anyone else) can offer.

    Patrick

    If you pick the wrong size you just have to go get different calipers at a cost of $12 each.

    I'd pick 7/16 as the 1975 K20 is a common choice for caliper application.

    Thanks for the quick reply...I am now the proud owner of a disc conversion kit for an axel I don't even own. Man, I love this hobby.

    Bill, it didn't ask which banjo I wanted, but if you read this, I apparently want the 7/16.

    Thanks to everyone.

    Patrick, I will send the 7/16 banjo bolts and crush washers in your kit. The only 10mm banjo bolts used are for brand new 1/2 ton calipers. After they are rebuilt they are also retapped to 7/16"
