sight glass leaking slightly

sight glass leaking slightly

PostBy: jimg On: Mon Oct 04, 2010 6:22 am

The sight glass on my steam set-up 520 HB is weeping slightly. What is the proper repair method for this? I did check and they are tight. Is there a rubber O-ring or other gasket material used on this?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks, is this a dealer only item or a could I get the compression ring at a hardware store? If so do you know the size. The nuts are okay, as least I believe. Thank you again for your help. Jim

you could try a few wraps of teflon tape around gasket.
