Has anyone had any luck sealing or how to seal the little copper tube to the glass sight tube in the gauge? I've been through three so far and all leaked fairly quickly, which peels the paint off the inside of the instrument cluster and runs down the back of the ammeter which will lead to corrosion of the pot metal. Other than that issue the system works just fine. If anyone out there has had success with making their own let me know the secret.

Straight Eight has many new King Seely items for sale. Great source for the unique and odd specialty parts.

Wasn't trying to mention any names, but that's where I got the ones I've tried. Gotten many other things from them over the years back into Classic and Exotic days and have always been happy. I must also add that they have been understanding and helpful.
