A second o-ring as suggested by Synth would work.


I dont mean to imply its spraying all over..... when I installed the rad, the fittingsd almost bottomed out and I remeber thinking you must have had them pretty tight at one point. No big deal..... but Im trying to find excuses to get a bigger rad LOL....... I'll dig up a oring from work and make it work for now. I already put out the "vide" of a new rad with the old lady.... we'll see!!!

thanks guys....

My System Specs


It's probably the 90* elbows which are not made for such use, and a small seep occurs. I never overtighten my barbs, especially when o-rings are used - no need to.
