ride plate leaking
ok I spent most of the afternoon putting my 05 RXT back together, and I had Jim mod my ride plate when I installed the plastic hose fittings I did not use any thread tape I did put a little permatex around the base I did this several days ago so it has dried
well today after getting it all back together and starting it fotr the first time ( GH box sounds great ) I noticed antifreeze around the base of the plastic pieces has anyone had this happend and is there something I can try as the one under the Riva intercooler is a real pain in the A__ to get to, I have thought about trying to tighten them more but I dont know
I plan on taking it out this week for a test run as I dont think this will really hurt anything I just cant stand something to leak so anyone have any tips

Going open loop will fix that problem.

when you say permatex, assuming you mean silicone, it ain't gonna get better. once it's cured and leaking tightening isn't going to help.

If it has the female type fittings there should be a o ring. If it has the male fittings it needs teflon tape around the threads.
