62restomod Thanks for the reply Speedbump. Local speed shop suggested I just grind a notch in the caliper for the banjo neck, think I'll do that since I already have these fittings. As for the bleeding part, maybe I'll pick up a vacuum bleeder.

speedbump The SS lines I used had a slight angle on the banjo fitting. Put it on one way and it hit, the other way(upside down) and it worked OK. The RP valve lets fluid go, uninterupted TO the wheel cylinder, it takes 10 lbs pressure to let it go back to the MC. That's not your problem. Sometimes you need to bench bleed those MC's in order to keep them from pushing and pulling an air bubble when you pump the pedal. A Phoenix or MityVac will overcome that problem because the fluid only moves in one direction without the aid of the MC.

Banjo fittings on Mustang 2 calipers

I'm in the process of plumbing and servicing the brake system on my 34. I found that the neck of the banjo fitting interferes with the caliper housing on the M2 brakes. I can grind a notch in the housing to accomodate the fitting but I wondered if anyone else encountered this with pre made SS lines.

Also, using the standard pump & hold method, I'm not moving much, if any, fluid to the rear brakes to bleed them. Could it have anything to do with the 10psi residual pressure valve. Yes, I double check to make sure I installed it correctly.
