When putting it back together, you need to tighten the adapter first, use a wrench to keep it from over-tightening while you tighten the fuel line fitting back on.

I hope this helps!
Thanks. That is a much more clear explanation.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
