Title: Oil tank outlet seal

Howdy

My B-stone GTR project is nearing completion but I have one nagging issue...

I cannot get the outlet on the bottom of the oil tank to seal. The threaded flange/port is not cracked. I think I just need to have the correct seal on the bolt / banjo fitting. Is there a readily available sealing washer outside of hoping to find a 40 year old NOS sealing washer(s)..?

I used bonded seals/ dowty seals on the banjo. Your local oring suppler should be able to assist.

They were M8 or M10, I don’t remember.

Good idea Hardy. So far the fibre washers I've used are holding well. Will take a hard look at any more tanks to make sure they have a smooth, flat surface before painting. I've also cured leaks from aluminum washers by sanding them smooth on both sides before installation, if used washers are necessary.
