Brass fittings - how loose/tight
Im putting together my regulator, solenoid, metering valve, and bubble counter with a series of brass elbows, 45s, and unions.
The unions are no problem with tightness - I can snug them up, but not too tight.
My concern is with the angle of the fittings and components. I have to clock them to a certain direction or orientation to make it all work. On some I get to a point where it's at the angle i need it at, but it feels like it's lose. However, I cant go around another 360* because it gets too tight.
What should I do? Crank to to the next rotation or leave it on the looser side?
