Crazy, I had no leakage or weeping on my metal housing. Are you guys sure that you torqued it down properly?

yeah, i thought for sure i'd done something wrong. disassembled, checked, retorqued (with a calibrated wrench) and all that.

looking back, maybe i got a bad o-ring or didn't clean the threads on the mount enough and it was slowly draining out i guess. the metal housing never really bottomed out, and had almost no resistance being tightened down - did you have that too?

There have been other threads concerning this issue. If installed properly the metal housing snugs right up, bottoms out, and cannot be torqued any tighter like you experience with the plastic one.

If the o-ring is installed properly any leaking is due to a small amount of oil on the engine side threads seeping out. Once it all seeps out itís done.

I saw that leaking with mine the first time after installing the metal housing. Now I clean all threads well and leave the skid plate off for a day or two of driving to check it. Iíve never seen any more leaks.

No, mine snugged up and definitely bottomed out
