I'm very familiar with the Treks of that generation having had a 2000 (still great riding bikes, IMHO, and classier than a welded frame). It depends on the caliper, but I would first recommend checking the length of the hex nut. The Trek aluminum forks back then (made by Kinesis, I believe) had a very short spacing between the brake mounting holes, so often the hex nut would bottom out on the end of the caliper's threaded section before it could properly secure the brake on the fork. If the new fork is similar, an easy solution is to get a shorter hex nut. You could get a spacer to place between the caliper and the fork, but why bother? Hope this helps. Luck.
P.S. Please tell me you don't have one of the lime green and yellow ones.
