    I've got a remote oil filter set up and for some reason the lines are leaking at the oil filter firring. What's good for sealing the threads?

    Where can I pick some up? I'm not always a fan of teflon tape and you can't use it here any way.

    Check that housing, if it's cast, it may have a crack!

    It says not to for the remote filter housing is all I know. SO I found the thread seal at Auto Zone. Better safe than having something flushing through that wil plug up something.
