Can someone point out the best pipe fitting sealer to use when connected the Sediment Bowl to the Gas Tank and the gas line to the sediment bowl?

A lifetime supply (1 lb), for not much more that the 5 oz tube from Lang's http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/cspages/ezturnlube.php?clickkey=218206

Yes, sealer for the sediment bowl to the gas tank. But not for the fuel line. The feed pipe pack nut (#2910) which attaches both ends of the line originally used a felt washer inside, but most today use a rubber or neoprene washer.

Steel brake line is better for a fuel pipe than brass or copper, which are subject to breaking from metal fatigue.


A rubber or neoprene washer goes inside the nut and is squeezed tight around the pipe as the nut is tightened.

I used to use a short piece of rubber hose but now use an O ring to seal the steel tube.

Felt works fine, use a piece and a half to get a good seal. KGB

Use a compression fitting whether at the carb or shut off if you prefer. It can be reused if removing the carb and still looks original if not using a shut off. Big advantage, no rubber or felt issues.

I have always used a steel fuel line and felt seals at either end. Never had a leak problem in 30+ years.

Use the neoprene washer as Steve points out as a compression fitting, EZ turn on the gas valve body, and a PTFE sealing tape on the threads. Always worked for me.

I've always used steel line with the original fittings and a brass compression sleeve. No leaks ever.

Loctite 567. Best ever, gas or oil. Any kind of thread fitting.
