i have had trouble keeping my pressure ports from leaking. I think it is because of the tapered thread being used up. I want to have my blocks machined with a staight thread and a o-ring boss fitting to prevent leaks. Anyone have imput?

What brand block is it? Could be poor machining or poor materail. Sinister blocks do that alot. It may be better to get good blocks instead of machining on crappy ones
MOST LIKELY SHITTY MACHINING......HERE AT THE SHOP, WE USE LOCK-TITE INSTEAD OF TEFLON TAPE,THAT SHIT SUCKS...WE AINT HAD NO LEAKS SINCE.....EVEN ON THOSE CHINA FITTINGS....

what about cutting them for the SAE fittings?

you wouldnt have to worry about a leak ever again..
i guess people are only using what hydro companies give them? :(

Think outside corporate hydraulics..... they make this stuff from the cheapest shit so we have to come back :angry:

everyone selling an aluminum block with tapered fittings is selling junk...

heres the problem...

aluminum block, steel fittings..

the fitting is tapered, and will actually push the aluminum out of its way, making the threads in the block become oversized..

then you tighten the fitting, it spreads the aluminum even more, and compounds the problem..

before long, the fitting is sunk 100% of its depth into the block, which is now garbage..

with an SAE fitting, the thread is straight, for the mechanical holding force, and the sealing is handled by the O-ring..

pipe threads are 1920's technology, maybe earlier..
what year is it now??


progress is a good thing..
