Good day to all
I have a secondhand filling station that leaks air at the red arrows.
I have tried the following:
- Using white plumbers thread tape (PTFE), from winding a few layers to a thick layer. It seems to disintegrate as I cannot see any tape on the threaded parts when I unscrew the connections.
- Using nothing at all after cleaning the threads.
I have tightened the fittings as far as I feel comfortable and near the end of my strength. I have noticed that the thread of the rifle's filling adapter does not completely screw across all the thread and not sure whether they are compatible?
I have searched this forum and found mention of PTFE tape only. Other resources on the web mentions Loctite 545, Vibra-TITE 444 and 446, and Permatex 592.
I have no previous experience with high pressure fittings and would appreciate all assistance from the vast experience on the forum.
