Shirley is nearly ready to go. Lots of issues with her sediment bowl and gas tank detailed here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/708324/709654.html?1490665707
The tank leaks are fixed. I put the sediment bowl on with Loctite 567. It spins on and is somewhat snug when it faces forward. Another quarter turn and it is very tight but facing the wrong direction and very hard to further turn it. I do not want to torque it on any harder to spin it facing forward because that's what I think hairline cracked the tank flange to begin with.
It seems ok. It is not leaking. I think the fuel line will keep it from turning loose. I really don't want to break this at this point. Is it ok as it is?
Leave it alone. No leaks and it's facing the front win win
Don't know about Loctite, have only used gasket sealer there on the threads, Permatex, gas resistant.
Seems you should leave it along and don't twist anymore. Let it face nearly forward and you are OK. It is a tapered pipe thread which is self-sealing normally, so just a little sealant on those tapered threads is sufficient.
Several wraps of Teflon tape worked for me.
Ignacio, you need to use Permatex High Temperature thread sealant. Resistant to gas. This happened to me and when I used this it worked.
There are two different kinds of Teflon tape, white and yellow. Use the yellow one for gasoline. Dave
Or use this. http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/cspages/ezturnlube.php Recommended to me by Dan Hatch. Works great.
Be careful with the teflon tape, its "slick" and you can over tighten the connection without knowing so.
You don't want to pop your tank fitting or crack your carburetor casting.
