Just fyi,

petroleum jelly works great as lubricant and thread sealant for plastic connections, especially for those with orings and such.

Teflon tape is a thread lubricant, but not sealant. Good to help threads engage fully, not seal threads or compression fittings.

Gorilla torque on plastic is sure to cause more problems, either sooner or later.

Those factory connectors have a wee silicon gasket in the middle which can be buggered up if not set correctly. And none of the big box stores sell the same fittings to replace it.

I liked the cut out and replace solution.
