Banjo bot replacement?

I have a slow leak on the banjo bolt on the front passenger side of the motor. Other then replacing the copper sealing ring is there any other style of fitting that can replace this. This is the second one I have seen leak.
Thanks

I put in the 6.4 banjos with new washers and they had a rubber coating on the washers. Seems to me like these would seal better than just the plain copper ones. I dont know of any other style fittings but at least your leak is on the easy side.

You could switch it all over to AN fittings. Get rid of the banjo bolts and increase the volume to the heads. That is part of my next project along with a regulated return.

Bondsman I would like to hear more about this conversion. I did a little research but have not worked with AN fittings before. It sounds like I would have to change the threads in the block?

Thanks

Look at jegs, earls or russell websites. They make adapters that go from m12 1.5 to -6an for the heads. It will be expensive to do, but if you knock out the front first, then save up for the regulated return. Do it with hard lines as much as possible. AN fittings are 37 degree and not your standard 45 degree brake flare
