    Hi,
    I just got a pair of HEL brake lines to upgrade my Juicy 7's. There are two fittings that seem like they might fit into the lever end so I'm not sure which one I should be using. The instructions are quite vague and the website is no better. Anyone happen to know if I should be using the two piece or one piece fitting at the lever end?

    Also, what am I supposed to be doing with the brass washers? I'm guessing one goes on either side of the caliper end fitting but I'm not positive.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Yeah the copper washers are for the banjo fittings (calipers).

    I believe one of the lever fittings is a swivel fitting and one is fixed.

    Its your choice on which one you want to use.

    Thanks Slater. I think I've got it more or less figured out. The only problem now is that I must have the older Juicy's b/c the thread pitch doesn't match. I'm going to see if I can use the old compression nut with the new supplied ss ferrule and still get a good fit.
