Default Golden Eagle sandwich adapter leak

My GE sandwich adapter has had a slow leak since it was installed. I didn't install it myself, but I noticed during my previous oil change that the 1" nut wasn't tight enough. I tightened it down and assumed this had fixed this problem. Yesterday I did another oil change and noticed there was still oil seeping from it. Oil pressure has been perfect, but I like to keep things clean. Golden Eagle is going to send me a new o-ring. I want to make sure it's done perfectly after the o-ring replacement. They were pretty vague about how much to tighten it down and weren't able to give me a torque spec. Should I assume that the torque specification would be the same as what's on the oil filter?

What did Golden Eagle have to say about it?

They told me to "hand tighten" it, lol. That could mean anything.

By the way, is there a way to stop these annoying "what's new" popups I get lately?

Hmmm. I haven't seen those at all. .. Any blockers you can activate on the device you're using? (Computer, phone, tablet, etc?)

I use Firefox with add-ons, including Ublock origin and NoScript. This is built-in to the forum itself. It happens every single time, just after I log in, then check on a post. There has to be a way to disable this. I took a screen shot.

Try clearing your cookies/cache for this website (or just the whole browser) and reload, see if you can clear it out and get it to stay off after that.

"Hand tight" is definitely a relative term, but I'd just get it on there nice and snug without choking the absolute living **** out of it. Twist it on until you feel a healthy amount of resistance, without putting all your muscle into it, and call it a day.

I always use Ccleaner every time I shut down my computer and Firefox is set to automatically clean the cache when closed. I'm guessing its the opposite. If it detected that this message was already given to me, it would stop spamming me with it, but since I delete them every time, it doesn't know.

It was nice and snug, and I'm sure the other guy had it that way. They need to list torque specs. I don't see why they wouldn't.

They may not have that.

Most places no longer utilize that type of information as something that they would use in a type of owners manual or diagram .

if your sandwich adapter is not fitting right - you need to run a small spacer between the nut that screws to your stock oil filter threaded bolt in-between the adapter and the m12.x1.25 adapter for the sandwich I got a close fitting washer from a specialty nut shop (insert pun here) used an angle grinder to make it smaller overall circumference and it bolted up great.

This is with an ebay sandwich plate, the problem is that it bottoms out on the stock oil filter bolt so it cant get a tight fit. I think this is why so maybe people complain about sandwich plate leaks, because they dont install them right. This is pretty much the same sandwich plate that I am referencing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Blk-Oil-Fil...IAAOSw~BhbFeOV

Shouldnt be any tighter then what you would tighten your oil filter. The Oring does the sealing not the torque.
