Ok so I suppose it differs slightly but this is the second time and I would not say I was under or over tightening what copper washers do you lads use on the turbo and the banjo bolts to block ? 

Want some spares for different kinds of brakes so what copper washers you using on them ?

Nissan ones for me, but I guess you would be able to get most of the popular sizes from a motorfactors or plumbers merchant

for oil lines etc look at trying dowty bonded seals if getting constant issue.
I have a set of copper washers like in link below & had them a few years & few jobs without issue.

If you are re-using copper sealing washers you can anneal them with a blowtorch to help them seal again.

Bonded seals are good too, see them at work in certain places but I bet they are expensive!

Nice one no I never reuse stuff new every time on things like that. Mr b link ones I find them just off the right size and the lip very thin.

I never had any major problem with them copper crush washers, did have a banjo on some brakes once that wept & only stopped on 3rd fitting of new washers. most causes of weeping is scores, grooves & shit on the joint faces.
Dowty bonded seal types can be had in most hydraulic & engineering type outlets & they quite cheap around 30p to a £1 for bigger size ones, most stuff for car use would be 30 to 70p a seal generally, bet moley got access to loads of them :-)
