Hi mate,

To be honest the connections shouldn't really need any additional sealant etc. if they are tightened up enough

Make sure you use 2 spanners , one to hold the fitting still and the other to tighten the nut. The nut and fitting need a fair bit of torque to get them to seal and this amount of torque is often enough to damage the other end of the fitting,where be it welded or threaded to something and by supporting the fitting you remove this potential for damage

Cheers guys, since I fitted the new sump gasket it seems to have been much much better, I couldn't get the pipes on first time round as the exhaust was in the way so when I get some spare time I'll take that part off to give me some more space to have a look at it

Thanks as ever for all the help and great tips/advice!

Cheers
Danny
