Sealing oil sender connection

657 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  WILL
Looking under the hood the other day I noticed that where the connection for the oil pressure line attaches to the block is leaking. this is just a brass fitting that screws into the hole where the oil pressure sending unit used to screw in. I switched some years back to a manual gauge. What type of sealant do you put around the threads to stop the leak? I'm assuming that standard plumbers tape would be eaten away by the oil.

Teflon tape works just fine. Just make sure to keep it on the threads so it doesn't get into the oiling system. And actually for the last few years I have been using teflon paste (with "chunks" of teflon in it) to do the same job. It seems to do a great job and works like the old plumbers dope.
