I am going to put a disc brake on my series 2, if I wish to run the hose through the fork clamp bolt hole is it a series 3 bolt that is required to gain the space.

Not sure if i have done right or wrong...but I just used an allen bolt with flat and spring washer on mine.
It then gave lots of room to feed in the brake cable.
I dremmeled slightly on the inside of the hole in the headset to take off the sharp edge.
So that it would not cut into the brake cable.

I could not get the cable to pass by the clamp.
You might of already fitted it and had no problems.
So i ground a bit off the clamp. As per photos.
This then gave me room to slide in the cable without removing the clamp in the future.
Again might not be the correct thing to do but its a fairly solid piece of steel so i figured it would not weaken it too much.....famous last words.ImageImageImage
