Alex Posted March 22, 2017 Report Share Posted March 22, 2017 Its probably been answered in some form but I am still concerned. I have petcock screws and fuel sensor screws that run into the tank. I am afraid if I coat the female threads with a wax that while mixing the seal around in the tank it will pick up some of the wax and interfere with adhesion not only on the threads but possibly affect the overall application. I thought about buying short screws and threading them into the holes and moving the sealer about in the tank but I may not be able to remove the screws once cured. Since my final step from everything I have seen and read will be turning the tank belly side up to let the excess sealer drain out I figured I could just go in and clean up the threads with a Qtip but the product looks kind of thick and I am worried that when i run my screws in it will crack or break off part of the new coating around the screw hole.I am probably overthinking this but .. its a fairly pricey undertaking and a weekends worth of work so I don't want to screw up. What is the absolute best way to handle the threads knowing the screws are long and go fully into the tank. Thank you for any help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
