Td04-15t swap ( copper washer trick)

I was wondering what size cooper washer people had used to make the lpt lines work on the tdo4? And does this work or does it leak a little?

The large OE style fuel filter washers, "Steel & Rubber" style work also. You just have to center the lines perfectly. I always cover the washers in "Red Gue" as well.

I just bought an assorted copper washer set from harbor freight.
Just use the smallest size that fits, center it up and tighten away. No leaks on the first start.

I really hope he's talking about red Permatex anerobic sealer, which you can use to keep the washers stuck to the banjo bolt while you attach the lines.

You want to keep RTV, or any silicone sealant, in any color, FAR away from the oil system.
