Pipe Sealants

Tonight I'll try to disassemble, clean, apply Permatex #14 Thread Sealant w/PTFE to all joints, and reconnect all of the newly added hydraulic lines on the feed truck. That's the one on the blue card.
The Pnuematic/Hydraulic Sealant looks like its more of a liquid, which would probably work better on smaller high pressure hydraulic lines than the #14 paste. I think the #14 paste should work better on the pipe threads that I'm dealing with.
Thanks again for the great technical discussion.

At least it cooled off outside and you don't have to work while the heat index is hovering around 115 or so. That is just nothing but miserable and more than a little dangerous.

I was cutting the grass and broke the riding mower and got too hot working on it in the heat of the day and didn't feel right for a week after. Still having headaches.

No doubt - the cool temperatures are a real blessing. After it rained 4 inches and then having a heat index of 100+ was nothing but miserable.
