Front brake hose thread?
 
Hi all after bleeding my brake system I discovered a leak due to crack on the male fitting pretty sure i didnt over tighten as there not enough space to get my hand into where the fitting was sitting to tighten it with force so i thought while i am here i'll get flex hose made up. my question is the thread in front rubber brake hose unf? And do I need to get 3/8 unf male connector, im just making sure that I'm getting correct ends attached . Thanks

you need to check it on your car IIRC Ive had 3/8unf and m10x1 in the past, and while they sorta screw into each other it isnt right. go to a motorfactors or local friendly garage and get a male and female fitting in both and use them to measure what you have.
