Facet Rd top unions

Recommended Posts

Should the fuel unions supplied with Facet Red tops be self sealng? I'm a bit timid about tightening them up but I think they should be ok without any form of sealant. Is that right?

Thanks in advance

I used Hylomar Blue. All good now.

They are tapered, so should be fine, but I’ve always given the threads a light wrap of plumbers tape before tightening . 

Beware of over tightening!

Blue hylomar isn't intended for continuous exposure to petrol.

The threads are tapered so petrol safe sealant or PTFE will help the sealing and thus reduce the smell of fuel.
