Question W126 Brake Caliper Hose Question

OK guys, I did a search but to no avail. I'm finishing up my FE rebuild and am installing the rebuilt calipers and new hoses. There is a plug in the hole for the brake hose and it has two copper washers. The question is...

do I need to use these two washers or one or none?

I don't recall these washers on the old calipers but then it's been quite a while. I checked the repair CD and there is no caliper drawing cross section.

TIA

OK, never mind, I figured it out. Both washers are required.

Good thing you figured it out Warren....'cause can't remember.

BTW: I'm working about a block from the Soo Locks right now. But I've been office bought so I don't get to see the traffic.

Bummer man, you could have the SOO cams going on your desktop. Funny thing, the cams are delayed, so you could get the instand replay.

BTW, I got the car mostly back together I just need to add important things like the master cyl, brake pads and fluid. I just wanted that milestone before it got cold and really rainy which it did later in the day. I also have a ton of leaves in my gutters.
