Need help with New Hydraulic Clutch line

Hi Guys,
Can someone please help me? I'm trying to replace my existing Clutch line with a braided line. The new line I have doesn't attach properly and leaks at the Master cylinder. It will thread in and tighten all the way but leaks at the fitting. Does anyone know if there's an adapter I'm missing? I can't find anything and wanted to check before I buy a new line with a banjo fitting. Any help is appreciated. I believe I have pictures attached.
Thanks

It looks to me like the banjo fitting is gone along with a crush washer.

The new hydraulic line I bought only has a banjo fitting on one end. The other end is a flared end. Below is a link to the line I have. Do you think there’s a way to make this work, or do I need to get a new line that has a banjo fitting on both ends?

Thanks for the quick reply.

The fitting on the hose is a Tapered type fit usually used on Calliper's & clutch slave cylinders,
and the hole in the master cylinder is for a straight banjo bolt,....
any chance you have the hose on the wrong way round with the master cylinder end attached to the clutch end?....
if not you will need an adaptor that takes a tapered female thread to a straight male thread with compression washer....

I checked and the hose isn't on backwards. I have the same issue either way the hose is. I think I did finally find the adapter that I need though. It's on order and hopefully it works. Thanks for the help guys

Looks like your master cylinder needs a banjo, and clearly your line is an inverted flange fitting You will need to buy a banjo adapter.. something like this...

Banjo Union 10mm Banjo Hole to 10mm Port

That line will not work you need a banjo on the master too. It uses the banjos washers to seal. The flare seals at the flare but the master will not have the other side of the flare to seal.....
