bladex saga continues

It's Sunday afternoon so I must be working on the Sabre...

Got new seals last week and proceeded to install today. Thanks for the vaseline tip. Between that and a little dose of olive oil the apparatus opens and closes nicely. It also seems to hold just fine.

However, the seal between the valve and the flange on the tank has a tiny drip. After pulling it all back off again I notice a small amount of damage to the flange surface. Looks like some previous repair effort may have had a tool slip or something and marred the surface slightly in one spot. I also notice when I first took it all apart the first time that the last repair effort by a previous owner included a big dose of silicone applied to same surface prior to final assembly. Probably what caused the seals to fail the last time.

Anyway, any suggestions as to how to address this latest issue? I suppose I could try the silicone trick again only with more precision so as to avoid it spreading too far and contacting the seals. Risky... Other thoughts?

As a newbie I ask, is any drip no matter how small a total breach of etiquette?

It's funny how ideas come to you when you need them. As I was putting the valve in today it happened. One bolt is very difficult to reach. I could touch it with my third finger as it protruded through the assembly but there was no way to hold the nut while reaching that far. What to do? Inspiration struck. I had been wearing disposable rubber gloves which were mostly useless as they tore so easily. So, I punched a 1/4" hole in the tip of the third finger where my finger print would be. Cut another hole further up, dropped the nut into the glove and maneuvered it down to the tip until the hole in the glove matched the hole in the nut. I was then able to reach into the space and hold the nut in place while tightening the bolt. My tip for the day.

That rubber fitting works great. I filled my black water tank full of water and it holds great.

The saga continues...

I cut a piece of inner tube and created a gasket to try and address the scuff marks on the flange. Seemed work OK. Everything held fine for 5 minutes. Then a trickle of water started but it wasn't coming from the area of the new gasket.

Apparently, there is a leak somewhere above. Likely between the flange and the tank itself. I gather that the pipe and flange are an integral part of the tank. Created as one or can they be taken apart? That is my new question. I'm not real keen on doing what it would take to put a whole new tank in place just now.
