At least I think that is what my question is.
I got a new water
pump for my engine
, the old one was leaking and a couple of components had rusted.
When installing my new raw water pump
, I found that in order to get the water output nozzle pointing in the only viable direction for attaching to the hose, the tension on the nozzle is not as tight as it could be, and a very small amount of water (one drip a minute perhaps) leaks
back through the threads.
Before putting the nozzle on I cleaned the threads with a wire brush and put on some teflon tape.
To make the seal as tight as it should be - and pointing the right direction -can I just use more teflon tape? As it is, I can't get the nozzle to go a full extra revolution.
