I made my own bottle fill set up and it has worked well for the past year. I am filling a couple bottles today and I feel a leak around my hand by the quarter turn valve and gauge. I get some snoop and spray it around to find most of the threaded fittings are leaking. I used ARP thread sealer when I assembled them. Does the NOS attack thread sealer? Do I need a special thread sealer? My buddy told me to use red loctite since I won't be taking anything apart. Thoughts????

Avoid teflon tape. If you're not careful, it ends up somewhere it shouldn't be.

NX supplies red loctite to seal their fittings. That's what I've always used.

I knew I wasn't going to use any tape. That stuff should be banned from any automotive uses in my opinion.....LOL. I am thinking the ARP sealer has teflon in it and it leaks after time. I'll check tomorrow and be sure if it does or not. I'm leaning towards the red loctite.

I've used Leak Loc, liquid teflon, blue loctite, green loctite, and red loctite. Out of the five--if the fitting wasn't as tight as Dicks hat band--eventually I had trouble with all except the red loctite.

We found that Leak Loc worked the best for us...when we used to use nitrous that is.
