Oil line leak
This involves an Autogage unit plumbed to a port at the top of the filter on an LS1 adapt.
The poly line enters the port via a brass compression fitting. All was well until I glanced at the gauge-engine running, and noticed 0 pressure!!! The line had popped out of the fitting. Further attemps to fix, then re-tighten the fitting don't seem to be helping much. It doesn't take much to pull the poly line back out of the fitting.
I don't want an accident to occur while I'm on the road. With the high volume pump, it didn't take long to empty 3 quarts onto the garage floor.
Any ideas for a more secure fix would be quite welcome.
BTW, the line attached to the gauge itself (also compression fit) seems quite tight. Thanks.
