Default Tigwerks Oil Drain Flange

Has anyone had any problems with the flange sealing to the back of the block?

I have everything on and its just leaking like no other right at the block. When I took out the oem drain tube it was really snug however when I placed the tigwerks in it seemed to be a sloppy fit as if it didnt seal correctly.

Im thinking of taking it back out and putting some high temp silicone to see if it will seal that way.

Any thoughts?

Silicone will not work with high temp oil. You have to watch out for the o-ring when you install it. Use some silicone grease and ease it in. I role an oring while in a hurry and it worked perfectly once I replaced it

The oil is only reaching prob 220 degrees if that. The whole suby engine uses ultra gray to seal oil in I dont see why it wouldnt work here. But I will take it out and give it a look.

By chance do you or anyone know what size the o ring is just in case it did get messed up on the install?
