A very slight gas leak where sediment bulb threads into tank.
Don't want to force and overtighten, thinking that the soldered threaded bushing in the tank may dislodge/distort/separate causing a big headache.
Do you recommend plumber's Teflon tape?
Get a tube of EZ Turn gas sealant used in Aviation, I think most T suppliers sells it. Seals up leaks in a jiffy.
I just used an Ace Hardware product this week called “Pipe Thread Stick” to seal the threads on the sediment bulb where it screws into the gas tank as well as the petcock at the bottom of the sediment bulb. You apply it liberally to the male threads, install the part and let it sit overnight. It has not leaked or oozed any gas from these connections since. I am very pleased with it so far. I also used some on the threads of the drain plug for the oil pan with similar results. This product says it can be used for gasoline, oil, water, steam, propane, butane, ammonia, etc.
A bar of soap also works well.
Thanks to all for your recommendations.
I'll go get the Ace Pipe Thread Stick.
The store is very close to my house and it is still open now.
Let us know how it works out, would you Jay?
