Should I use teflon tape?
I finally recieved my on/off valve, PSI gauge and needle valve in the mail for my DIY paintball "regulator". I just have one question before puting it all together.
Should I use that yellow gas rated teflon tape on the threads or just put it together? How were these disigned to be assembled?
Should I tape the threads where the gauge and needle valve screw in? And should I tape the threads of the bottle where the on/off valve goes on?
I'm assuming tape the gauge and needle valve threads then tighten them down and just put a new o-ring on top of the bottle and call it good?
Or is there some sort of sealant or something that I'm missing?
