This is the first one I believe. I've tried super black RTV, Jeg's fuel fitting sealant, white teflon tape, and yellow teflon tape.

Don't use the tape on those fittings, use the paste linked above. Is it leaking from the 1/8 npt fittings?

My tuner toys rail leaked and I tried the tape with no luck. I ended up using the Permatex stuff and its been leak free since.

We beat the women and will beat the Men's team also once we finish with Slovakia

Use Teflon Paste and make sure the fittings are nice and snug. This are NPT fittings.. They won't leak as long as the surfaces are clean, you use Teflon paste.

Joking aside.. 99% of our business is in the USA. Our team knows how to speak American.
