Clutch line has a slight leak just outside the bell housing

Recommended Posts

Where the lines connect outside the bell housing it leaks, its only a slight leak but it drips right on that electrical connection on the tranny. Is there anything I can put on the threads to fix that? They are brass connectors I think.

teflon tape



only for NPT pipe threads (fittings that use the threads for sealing). I don't know what type of connectors the clutch line uses, but teflon tape is not to be used on fittings that seal on the flared end inside.

Tighten it another eighth of a turn.


hehe, yeah thats what I did, so far it worked for the main line, but there is still a slight drip on the bleeder, I need to find the right wrench for it. :work


If there is any contamination inside the fitting (i.e. a bit or dirt or rust), then it may never seal properly.
