Billet Fuel Filter Cap

I went ahead and ordered me one of the billet secondary fuel filter caps and put it on, but it leaked. I ordered mine off of flea bay which very well could be the problem. Where did you all order yours from and do they leak? Mine was leaking from the threads...

Did you remember the o-ring? Would you mine posting which one from eBay you got? I ordered one also and it is sitting on my shelf waiting to be put in.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

That's the one I got. It came with the O-ring already around it so there was no forgetting it. The guy said to wrap the threads a few times with teflon tape, but I wasn't sure if that was a good idea. Seems like it would be a PITA to have to wrap it everytime I changed the filter. Seems like one of them out there wouldn't require that...

My fuel and oil filter caps are from Bullet Proof Diesel and they do not leak one bit.

Did you have to wrap your threads with teflon tape? Diesel Manor also has one, but not sure if it leaks or not?...

NO teflon tape on the threads!! The o-ring at the top of the cap is the sealing device. If it leaks thru the threads the cap was not designed correctly. There are some very important details that could be missed very easily.

Go with a known quality manufacturer!

I used teflon on the threaded plugs on top of the caps.

With that being said, should I take the teflon off of the plugs on top of the caps?

That was my thought. I did do what rattlesnake did though and put it on the plug on the top of the cap.. is that a bad idea? I will for sure go with a reputable seller this time.. Guess trying to save a few $$ ended up costing me as usual..
