HWH reservoir oil cap

My slide creeps out so I went to check the t valves and noticed the cap for the reservoir was pretty loose. I was able to tighten it a little but still only 3-4 threads. Should it fit down tight on the tank ? I attached a pic of how far I was able to hand tighten it.

Thanks for all the help

No fear, the pipe threads are a tapered thread that will tighten before threading all the way in. The cap also acts as a vent and fill opening so does not need to be overtightened.

Did you also use the "tool" on the other end of the cap?

I didn't realize the tool was in the end till I quit for the day. The Winnie manual said I should use a 1/4 nut runner. When that didn't fit I figured I still had not found the right area, so I quit and took both manuals back in the house for another read (Was 98% frozen by that point anyway). The HWH manual talks about T handles mostly, but in one place does mention the tool in the cap. I will try it over the weekend. I think I have a leak in a T fitting. the whole area is covered in fluid, but that T seems to be source. Not sure if low fluid would cause the creep out however. Or maybe the leak is causing it to lose pressure over time. Not sure if pressure it was is supposed to keep it in however.

Going to be even colder this weekend, so it's not going to be fun

Thanks for all the help

Here is a starting point from HWH. Go to their website, they have a ton of information and diagrams. http://www.hwhcorp.com/mi9546.pdf

Thanks, I have been on the HWH site. Over the weekend I was able to tighten the 1/4" nuts and check the fluid level, which was down a little. Also cleaned as much oil off stuff to try and see where it's leaking from.
