I am replacing the peacock valve on my 98 thunderbird and when I got everything installed there is fuel seeping out of the new valve. Is there some trick to installing these things so that fuel doesn't seep out between all the parts?
Thanks

I'm guessing you meant "petcock". There should be a spacer and it also helps to seal with a gasoline resistant sealant. Snug it down tightly so it seals, but not so tightly it distorts the flanges.
