I have the old 4-piston XT caliper (BR-M755), and the old XT brake lever...i.e. the one with the large parallelogram-shaped reservoir and uses the banjo connection (BL-M755).
According to Shimano, this set-up requires the BH-61 hose.
I'm wondering why I can't use the BH-63. The BH-63 hose comes with a banjo connection on the caliper end just like the BH-61 hose and is intended for use on the BR-M755 caliper, just like the BH-61. I'm wondering why I can't simply install a banjo connection on the lever end of the BH-63 hose.
Also, if the caliper end of my BH-61 hose is damaged, do I need to purchase a new hose, or can I somehow replace the crimped-on banjo? Or replace it with something else?
