    Thread or Paste

    Waiting on some Amsoil parts for my oil bypass system on the Silverado. Went ahead and mounted the bypass unit and installed all the fittings to it. As I was doing it I was thinking about asking you guys.

    On fuel/oil lines ......on the fittings do you use teflon tape or paste?

    I'll tell you what I use and why but am curious about you folks.

    Had to get out of my comfy chair and go look -- it is not a teflon paste. Recommended for a variety of metals and plastics. I remember reading the labels on all the different thread sealants and liked this one best or some reason.

    Paste.

    I'd prolly go with the non-tef stuff Jeff is talking about.

    Reason, some forms of paste contain teflon and can be disolved by various fuels and/or melt away with heat..

    Last thing you'd want is that stuff floating around in your oil or fuel..

    Tef-tape can cause fittings to crack if wraped too heavy..

    Another option could be brass compression fittings/unions with brass (not plastic) ferrils as these type of fittings have no need for any "sealants"..
