This thing will not stop leaking!!! What recommendations do you have?
New "O" ring if it has one, if not, thread sealant like locktite's #561.
Thanks. I will try the locktite.
Glider, will LOCTITE 222MS be ok. It is for small fasteners to 1/4". How would thread seal tape work?
Loctite 222 - Low Strength (LOC-22221)
For occasional adjustments of small fasteners may be required. Small hand tools can be used to overcome the adhesive seal. Best for 1/4” and smaller fasteners. Temp. range: -65º to 300ºF (-54º to 149ºC).
Thread Sealant, Semi-Solid Cures rapidly to provide immediate low pressure sealing.
I would say no . The 561 is specificaly designed for leaks where 222 is not.
Thanks for the info. I think I'll stick with 561 in that case.
The only 561 that I have been able to find is a pipe sealant and it comes in a stick. Is that what yall are talking about?
That'll do it.
I have a '91 Dyna and an '03 UC. I use a wrap or two of teflon tape on my primary oil drain plug and then install it to the depth listed in the service manuals. Never leaks from the drain plug. Just make sure that you do not overlap the threads inward. Let any excess width of the tape be outside the drain hole.
