Looking at the Skandix diagram the 1800ES is different than the 140. It looks like there are two short hardline sections at each caliper and the 140 only has one. On the 140 the second flex line goes directly into the caliper body. Given that both flex lines match to short hard lines at the caliper on the 1800 then there is probably less (no?) risk of mixing the flex line fittings. Your only risk is mixing the primary and secondary circuits on the calipers.

The 1800 was fitted with the 140 brake calipers starting in 1969 (same part numbers) and I made the error of assuming that the installation would be the same. Close inspection of your car shows that the flex lines approach the caliper from behind the suspension. On the 140 the flex lines approach the caliper from in front (they actually are mounted to a clip that floats on the anti sway bar upright).

That's correct. The two hard lines mount into the front of the calliper and they both do a U turn pointing to the back. I guess as long as I have them connected the same way on both sides it'll be ok.
