    I think we have a basic disagreement on problem solving.

    The original method of sealing these that HD used is not up to snuff for me. You seem to be recommending... just doing it that way.

    Copper didn't work out for a few reasons. I tried a few ways and a few forms, and it just wasn't working.

    Next up was the Gasoila E-seal. This stuff is... awesome. I called one of their chemists...

    I like this idea. I think Gasoila will be easier to clean up if it doesn't seal, so I will probably try this stuff after that, but before J-B weld.

    I also have some .010" copper sheet on the way....

    Agree. Enlarging that hole is not on my list of things to do. If Larry got his to seal dry, I may do the same and simply put a little plug of RTV or JB in place... if the fuel eats it, it takes two...

    Sure, but the threads don't seal, the lip does, right? How did you seal the hole in your head the factory drilled to rivet it initially?

    No doubt, but that involves sealing up a thing, and then drilling a hole in the thing you just worked so hard to seal.

    Hey Cotten,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm not sure I understand the chamfer issue; I'll be sure to examine the mating of seal and nipple when I get the nipple in hand.
