Installing some superstar brake hoses tonight. Can't for the life of me get the lever end insert fully into the hose. There is a 1mm (no more) gap between the cut end of the hose and the back of the insert.

Does that 1mm really matter? Looking at it another way, there is 9mm of insert inside the hose for the olive to crimp on...
