Forget dope. Use silicone. Apply silicone liberally to the threads and hand tighten only.
:eek:



You crack me up. :laughing:

If anyone thinks I was serious, they haven't paid any attention to what I am all about.

But I had fun writing it!

I popped in earlier, read it and pretty much thought the same thing Ron said.

Sawzall? nipple extractor?...ok, I guess we all have out own way of doing things.
The silicone gave it away.
Shoulda told him flux instead.

While he had the sawzall out he should go ahead and cut ALL that crap out.

You shoulda told him it was a servicable tank. Cut in half and patch the bladder. Then JB weld it back together. That way he doesn't have to mess around with that pesky thread.
