    does not leak...

    that's what I'm goin for.

    kinda tough considering all you have to go through to make sure that doesn't leak -- reinstall fuel filter, line, and fittings! If it does you've gotta do it again!

        Yep
        just because you found it that way does not mean it is supposed to be that way.

          It is easy to over torque a tapered pipe fitting. That is another reason the teflon tape is a "no-no" - it makes it too easy to over tighten the fitting. I recommend the Permatex fitting sealer.
