OM615 fuel filter banjo bolts

I'm reinstalling the fuel filter housing on the OM615 out of my '76 206D, and came across something I forgot to properly document as I was taking everything apart. I've got three banjo fittings on the housing -- but one bolt is different! Compared to the two others which have multiple large holes, one bolt only has one very small hole:


I currently have it in the line going to the injection pump input -- is this correct? Is this bolt even correct, or should all three have the same large holes?

Small hole (restriction) should be on the tank return line.

That means it's the top one -- Thanks!

Would you recommend new brass washers?

New washers. Either copper or aluminum.
