Found a slight leak from ORING area.What is everybody using here to repair this weak area with the oring.seems to leak alot.is everyone replacing the oring or are they cutting the clip and using rubber hose and clamps instead?
I have used a trick from Rob1976 before he jumped ship was to use a clamp to help it to not move as much since there's a lot of slop there.

Replace the oring with a thicker one from a hardware store.

I use a double o-ring fitting from @[email protected] and run AN fittings.

As for that flapper itself, I ripped off that shitty clip and relocated behind my 'drip can'.

I call it a drip can because it has no filter, only there to catch the drips which is all that ever seems to come out of the high side

im trying to visualize your setup.so you connected the metered flapper closer downstream to high side of catch can?

I've been trying to put my car together, but I keep having problems. I think I'll have it together tomorrow for a photo. Pretty sure the shotgun killed my HPFP.
