need help about fuel filter question.

I posted this in the 911 section but I need to see if I can get an answer here also. just got done changing both filters but I don't think my frame filter cap is on right. my torque wrench indicates that it is tight but the cap is not sealed to the filter housing. there is about 1/32" gap. is this the way it is supposed to be or is this thing cross threaded?

Mine tightens down without a gap. Take it off and see if any threads are messed up. I always lube the cap threads with some oil before putting it back on.

just did it without the torque wrench and forced it to close up the gap. threads are fine and I was just being a little over cautious to not over tighten it and break it since it was my first time doing this on this vehicle

even with lubing the O-ring there seems to be a lot of friction at this filter and the oil filter ,, I don't use torque wrenches for some things
