    Pic 1 shows the caliper where the banjo bolt screws into. In there is a nipple that has to seat over the end of the bolt.

    Pic 2 shows the end of the banjo bolt. The hole from the Tacoma banjo bolt is too small to fit over the Tundra fitting.

    Pic 3 shows why the end of the bolt has to be drilled out. It will not seat all the way to the bottom threads.

    I hope this is clear
