    Leaky oil injection fittings

    I cannot get my oil injection fittings to stop dripping on my 2002 Ultra 150. I even took them out and applied red loctite. Anyone else ever have this problem?

    How are the hoses secured to the nipples?

    Use .025" stainless steel safety wire. Wrap it around the hose twice, then twist the ends together. Cut the twisted end off about 3/4" from the hose, then bend it over so you don't cut yourself on it.

    If you have trouble finding safety wire, try the mechanic at your local small airport. You'll need less than 5 feet, which is only a few cents worth. Buy him a Coke.

    My middle carb has a leaky oil nipple. I can't get it to stop either. I removed the fitting and carefully cleaned all surfaces, used red loctite and it still drips. Same issue here. Let me know if you find a fix.

    You could try permatex #2 it works really well on freeze plugs and block plugs on car engines which seems like a similar application
