  • Castaway Ray And Teflon Tape

    You may or may not know this but teflon tape and pipe dope are primarily used for tapered (pipe) threads. There intended use is to lubricate, not seal. There are numerous applications where the use of t/tape is down-right forbidden.c/6Hooty

    I did NOT know that Hooty ... I thought it was a sealer, Ill be dammned ... why not just use a shot of never seize? Learn something new every day, but do I use it on the tank fitting? or just run it in dry? (Im bein good JB!!!!)

      If it's the female opening into the tank, it's probably a tapered (pipe) thread so use it. Be careful to keep the tape away from the end of the male fitting. If the tape shreads off, it has a nasty habit of find ittle bitty orficii and plug 'em up. That's why they keep it (the t/tape) away from fine (not musical) instruments. The rest of the threads are probably flared or compression fittings so no need to use. ... and yep, never-sieze or just a drop of oil will work fine. c/6Hooty
