Hi Bob, I'm not really sure how the ends got crimped. I'm thinking that somewhere along the line the caliper was taken off the car and maybe dropped and the jolt bent the fitting where it screws into the hard brake line and got crimped. You can actually see where there is a crease in the cable where someone did something to it. The hose shop cut off the fitting at the end and it was plan to see that something wasn't right. It just seems odd that it was on both right and left side. At any rate I've got a good working braking system that I never had and it's fun to drive it again. Thanks for the input.
