Brake Problems, hose leaking at caliper threads

I recently installed brand new brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake hoses.

Now, kind of a big issue, brake fluid is leaking out of where the caliper and the brake hose connect, I never received a brass crush washer with the hoses, do I need to go get a few?

The fluid seeps out from pretty much all 6 sides of the end of the hose, and only when you step on the brake, and it comes out one droplet at a time, it doesn't stream out

Right hurr:

also, is this the master vac needing to be replaced?

Did the new hose come with crush washers? They usually do and i would definitely recommend reinstalling this with some crush washers.

I grabbed some at work, will reinstall today, I was irritated that they didn't give me any at the auto parts store, but thankfully I was able to get some for free

Free is good! Sometimes the items get packaged incorrectly at the factory. Or someone buys the hose, takes it out and decides to return it and forgets or takes the crush washers. I've seen both of these happen.

Either way GL and let us know how it works out.

Still haven't gotten around to putting the crush washers on the brake lines yet, has either been a little warm, raining, or I get off too late to do it or I don't have anyone to help me bleed

But to the video I posted, Brake Master Vac?

That's what you're clutch/brake does before/while you're bleeding it. Bleed it first...
