I have purchased a new fuel tap. I have taken some time "lapping" the joint surfaces with fine grinding paste. After cleaning assembled with a little oil and it still weeps. Repeated several times. Am I missing something with the preparation of the tap?

Fuel Tap

Hello Ian
I had the same problem.
Unfortunately it is very difficult not to drip this kind of taps.
If the conicity is not perfect will always lose, and If they are cromed the parts separated is like impossible that It didn't weeps.
I had try whit turning machine, but no positive results.
Ciao Luigi
