Hi Michael. The problem you have is the copper washer has fine machine markings which allow leakage, torque is not critical. its only a plug really, similar to a sump plug, take it off and dress the washer on some fine emery paper until its nice and smooth , u can use a smear of silastic to be sure it seals if you wish (i didnt) and refit, just tighten it up snug..its a commom fault, cheers, Tadpole
