Frank, I sealed my bowl assembly with Permatex Motoseal Fuel Resistant Gasket Maker. I applied the stuff to the metal housing ring; both sides of the screen; both sides of the rubber washer; and to the rim of the glass bowl. 24 hours later, I checked the bowl and NO LEAKS! However, the bowl had refilled with gas even though the valve was securely closed, so I guess my valve isn't seating like everyone else's. I'm thinking of dropping the whole assembly and using pumice stone and mineral oil letting the valve grind a new seat on the housing, similar to the method used in the above mentioned tutorial. Once again, how can it be so complicated to make something so simple which works properly! China must use students from high school shop classes to machine the devices.
