But really who the heck puts thread inserts on hydrolic lines?
I've done that many a time with no problems. And, yes, that includes hydraulics.
I am a retired industrial machinery mechanic. All told, around 40 years of work experience. Worked on air systems with pressures up to 4500 psi and hydraulics up to 3000 psi. None of them used pipe thread.
However, all sorts of connections can use thread inserts because they don't use the threads to do the sealing.
As mentioned in a response above, the threads on the bleed valve don't do the sealing. The tapered seat in the caliper that mates with the taper on the bleed valve does the sealing.
