280zx front brakes hose

Hi. I was under the impression that the stock 510 brake calipers used the same hose, or same fitting, as the 280zx caliper. I tried to install the brake hose into my 280zx caliper but it wouldnt thread. I had no problem treading the same home into my rear 200 calipers. Does it use a different fitting than stock?

Problem solved..... I was just afraid the hose was cross threading so backed off tightening. It threads on fine now but not as nice and easily as the rear brake calipers. Maybe just grim on the caliper threads?
