Default More specifics

After having several leaky brake fittings and failed attempts at fixing them, i was shown what i believe is the proper way to apply thread sealant. Just using the tube and placing sealant around the threads didnt work for me. What was needed was using your finger and pushing it into the threads all the way around the fitting. Then clean any off on the first couple of threads. Doing This finally corrected my leaky fittings. Try it - Nothing to lose.
Robert Paisley of EFII demonstrated the procedure and Rightrudder, above, can attest to my troubles. 2 months and 30+ hours with NO leaks.
