see if a slight twist on the bolt is needed to snug the housing down a tad more. easy though so you dont over torque. if that doesnt work then do as mentioned above.

I have used thread tape on the trans lines to clear up that sort of issue.

Thanks! I gave them a little more oomph yesterday with a flare-end wrench and it felt much kore "positive" I think I may have just been to hesitant when buckling everything back in. Iíll see today in the daylight what the situation is under there
