Hi, Just wanted to know if there is a fiber washer that can be replaced at the caliper bolt where the brake line is connected , our F53 chassis has a slight leak coming from the bolt we have tightened but still get a small amount to leak still looking to replace a washer if there is one there, or do you think it is not tight enough yet?
thanks is there a web site that has pics of the right front brake caliper and fitting?

If you replace those washers you may introduce air into the system and need to bleed the lines. You may want to inquire into that as well.

Thanks for the replies, will go to the dealer for washers and also bleed the front brakes afterwards.

Hi again,
Just got back from the local Ford Dealer for the copper washers for the caliper brake line bolt..
was told the hardware comes only in a new or rebuilt caliper...
I just find that hard to believe...
Does anyone know the part number for just the washers or the bolt and washers????
thanks for your help,

I have a 93 F53 chassis. I replaced the calipers and hoses about two years ago because the calipers were sticking and getting my wheels extremely hot. I am not 100% sure, but I think the copper washers came with the hoses, not the calipers. One possible thing to do is to take measurements from one of the washers on your system and purchase some new ones of the same dimensions. You can probably find ones of the correct dimension from an industrial supply company such as http://www.mcmaster.com/
Just do a search on their website for copper washers and find the right size you need. It is very easy to order from this company with a credit card. They do not have minimum quantities and will ship via UPS to your house.
