    Posted: 20 February 2005 at 3:40pm
I have a problem with my 98c my gass line is loctited into the
valve and somehow one of the threads on the gass line that
connects the valve to the gass line is cracked(CO2 leak!). I
know I will proably have to order a new gass line and valve ,
but I was just wondering is there anything I can do to fix the
problem .
I have already tride loctiting it agian , but loctite does not
properly dry outside of the threads and it is almost impossible
to disconnect the gass line from the valve. If you guys have any
suggestions it would be a great help.

try some teflon tape instead. wrap more than 3 layers clockwise around the threads. that should give you a better seal, and stop it.
