Default left side oil line question

Last year I had the oil line on the left side powder coated and I reinstalled it and everything worked fine. Today after about a year or so I realized there was a good amount of build up of the oil around two of the three bolts , the very bottom left one and the upper right one. In the pictures I unfortunately already wiped it all off but what could it be just didn't tighten it enough? I hand tightened it, do I need a tool to really pop those suckers on there? Also I find it odd that the top left one was fine without any residue buildup.. Im pretty sure they were all the same tightness

Normally copper or crush washers are used with banjo bolts, 2 per bolt = one @ each side of the fitting.

Do not have time to research part numbers.

What he said. ^^^. Some members just flip the washers over but I always buy new ones. Never an issue.

You're thinking me reusing the washers might not be good? Have to buy new ones?

Your local auto parts store should have copper washers in various sizes.
Take a sample with you for correct sizing, ask for brake hose washers.

Not to say it will work all of the time but i re-used mine and no leaks. There is a torque rating on them so hand tight is not enough.

when reusing copper washers.. glow them out (or whatever it's called in english) just hold em in a flame till they glow and let em cool naturally.. restores their ability to get squashed.

I'm sorta big on always using fresh sealing / crush washers too. Including spark plugs and oil plugs and brake lines. Cheap insurance against stripping aluminum threads. Odds are this is the only trouble in your case, these lines are generally trouble-free. Fingers crossed for you!

Anneal is the word you're thinking of.
