Is it need to have rubber washers at the line- master pump connection

Post by Dumindu » Wed Feb 27, 2019 8:09 pm

My car is a Toyota Tercel 1987 4WD 1452CC DX Wagon.

I did installed a new brake master pump.

When I disassemble the old one I didnt find any rubber washer at the connection of lines to the master pump.

When I install the new one, I did the same. I didnt put any washer.

Would it ok?

Can metal to metal connections prevent any leak?

there are no washers or gaskets at the brake line connections. the conical shape of the flare hose nut makes all the seal it needs.

you are good to go.
