Would it pay to soak the felt with any kind of product to help it seal? Like RTV or soap.

Tommy, I am on your side. If their hands are that dirty making a video, where else have those hands been? No problem with dirty hands when you are working. If you want a video, cut the nails and wash your hands. Might even get a haircut. And it doesn't matter if it looks like you have worn those pan...

Re: Fuel Line Leaking

I add a few drops of oil to the felt before placement. Seems to work. I do not have any leaks. Others have used soap from a soap dish. Rumor is that that will work as well.
