RE: RE: [T3] Oil leak.

Hey All,

Berg recomends that you use locktite, (he tells you to use his version, or similar).  The blue version should do.  He says that teflon tape can come off, and clog oil passages in your engine.  This is why he says not to use teflon, but installing them dry is asking for leaks down the road.  And you then might be tempted to overtighten a fitting and crack something.  This is all in his instruction sheets when you buy his hoses,  fittings, and filters.  Just thought I'd share.
