Good question. The T is the main thing I'm needing.

Everything I was missing from when I bought new cylinders. PO cross-thread both of them when "repairing" the rear brakes.


As for the bolts-one snapped in half-the other fell down my porch; unable to get a grab on it.

OK, I have what you need, all I can say about the parts is that I opened the bleeders and they work properly, I removed the cut brake line ends as that is how I removed them, and they are SAE parts as I used 7/16ths to remove the bleeders/brake line ends, and the head on the banjo bolt is 9/16ths.
The bleeders have been removed before and the 7/16ths 6 point wrench goes on them with difficulty, they have been tightened/removed with an open end wrench in the past, so the corners are rounded a little, but I got them off with a 6 point closed wrench and a hammer, as impacts loosen stuff like this way easier than just twisting with the wrench and taking the chance of them just twisting off.

I will be keeping the brake line ends.

Just PM me your address, you will owe me 10/20 bucks or a very small favor someday.

You can see in the photo that both copper washers are there on both pieces, but they are both on the one end so that they don't get lost, don't forget to put them where they are supposed to be when you mount them.

Your Welcome, I hope the banjo bolts are the correct thread slope, I don't really know what year axle they came off of.
