[DML] Re: Oil Leak

Something else to watch on this..... Normally the leak is around 
where the wire is attached. However I bought a couple of these 
recently and they were supplied with a copper washer that was very 
slightly too large, so that it didn't seal around the switch itself. 
This caused a rather dramatic NEW leak (lots of pressure there!). 

If the copper washer doesn't just barely fit over the threads, get a 
different one. OR be very careful that the washer is centered as you 
tighten up the switch (difficult in that space).
