Default aeromotive fuel regulator

i have a aeromotive fuel regulator and am having trouble with some leakage out of the port in the back, i had a fuel line for n2o ran into it, i have since put the stock plug back in, (there is no damage to the treads) but it is leaking, what is the best thread sealer to use, to make sure no fuel gets around those threads? and has anyone else had this problem? my aeromotive is for a sn95....thanks!

they make some liquid thread sealant at autoparts stores. i use that kind of stuff at work and its great. you could also use teflon tape.

I would CAREFULLY use teflon tape, wrap it with the the treads and you'll have no problems...
Been doing them that way for 25+ years......

well i did that and the gas turned the tape to mush, and still leaked? i did use some red thread sealer that came in my n2o kit, im fixing to go to the garage to see if that worked? but i was wandering if this problem was common since i am working with alluminum threads?

Sounds like a thread on some fitting is galled out.
Bad thing about the aluminum fittings is just that.
See if you can find a steel fitting to do the job.......

it should not need anything at all on it. i have an aeromotive regulator and it does not leak a drop. U may have messed up the dighphram inside of it. you are supposed to hook it to the shrader valve.
