Inmate help. 950 SE safari tank gas sensor not sealing.

What is good to use with the o-ring on the dummy light sensor to keep that damn thing from leaking?

Hmmm. ... had one leak once and I just replaced the oring ... all was good.

Silicone sealer will turn to jelly and leak after a while so thats out.

Can you check and make sure both surfaces are flat? Also.. over tightening the mounting bolts may cause a leak as the plastic will mushroom. Are the bolts bottoming in the inserts maybe.

Update. So the one guy that I called at Safari tanks was about as helpful as wrong directions. But I did check out the mating surface where the seal goes, and it looks like they may have taken a de-bur knife, and slipped out of the hole twice. So I would need some type of a sealant. I found Permatex permashield. easy to apply, and so far no more leaks.
