I have a CSR remote filler tee (http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/53045/10002/-1) to use in my upper radiator hose. The two hose fittings screw into the body and have a o-rings that face seal between shoulders on the respective parts.

How tight do these junctions need to be torqued? The squish of the o-ring is the only thing that stops the parts coming together.

Has anyone had issues with these backing out or the o-rings leaking?

The machine work on this is a thing of beauty. I just got a little nervous trusting my engine to the bitsy o-rings without asking first.

Thanks!
