I am not clear as to what exactly your problem is...if it is
leaking threads it is common in auto and aviation to use a
product referred to as "fuel lube". I think it is a lubricant as
well as a sealant. Its been around for a long time and seems
to cure any and all fuel system leaking problems. It is good stuff.
Also, it looks like the thread have some residue of some sort of sealant
on them...maybe teflon tape which is a no-no in fuel systems. I would
wire brush them to get the threads cleaned up.
