Sorry for not responding sooner, I deleted all my subscriptions somehow, and didnt get an alert.
I did two other dipsticks after doing this one.
I think that either the inside flange on the black truck (the truck this was based on) was either distorted or I got a bit of oil on the inside o-ring, because its got a bit of a leak to it. If I did get oil on it before adding the red loctite, I think that might be the cause of my leak.
The other two have been holding up fine. They were never touched, attempted to be tightened, so I think that if they are tried to be tightened, thats what warps the flange and nut.
The Dieselorings.com kit has a good pdf download for the instructions, that is basically what I did.
As for tips, just make good and sure the wire brush is wedged good into the flange, and give it a bend, so that you can hook the brush on the hole after removing the nut. Also, do it with the oil drained. I did not drain my oil, and thats how I think I may have contaminated the flange before applying the loctite to it.
