How can I be sure if I have the correct line bolt for the front brake hose to caliper application?
Thanks.
Stan

Get the bolt that fits the make/model of your calipers. Link to bolt example.

Ok, if you know what the caliper's original car fitment was, any parts store can provide the proper bolt. Most aftermarket disc brake conversions use a metric gm caliper. But find out what you have. Hmm one minute difference with acardon. Lol

Thank You Both for the advice!
It is much appreciated.
The car now has new CPP stock front spindles with 70-72 AC Delco calipers. The reason for my concern was the 69 Camaro front rubber brake hoses.

The calipers evidently can be either metric or sae, so you can understand my dilemma, as I have no idea which ones I have.How can I tell? Will the bleeder screw be any kind of a tell tale?
Thanks.
Stan

PS I apologize for the huge delay - I thought I asked the Question in the CPP area and not ever seeing it there -I gave up!

I don't think they used metric in 72. Link to bolt.

They certainly didn't in 72.

Again, Thank You Both for your reply.

My acute relief was short lived as I noticed the difference between Rock Auto's (Dorman) suggested PN and Speedway's suggested PN for their Conversion Kit, of which I have neither - they don't even look the same, nor do they measure the same in length.
RA uses thin copper washers to seal while SW uses Zinc Plated copper washers. The lengths vary as well.
Typical problem I guess - Thanks for ya'll's efforts anyway, I appreciate them all!!!!

But like I said, there's a problem -

What about the bolt itself? Is the hole in the bolt supposed to be more towards the centre of the available space inside the brass of the hose OR will anywhere be ok - given the relative positio9n of the hole that leads to the inside of the hose that feeds the caliper? Make any sense?

I'm in a wonder as the hole and/or the location of the feed hole in the bolt doesn't seem to be inside the cavity of the brass all the well - closer meazure - tomorrow - but just eyeing it says the bolt may be too short restricting the flow of fluid a little!

I tire of being crazy about this stuff but it seems necessary - is it? Or is this just another sign of how messed up my life is?
Thanks.
