Be carful as you can over tighten it and strip the threads. Once that happens it's new tank-time. I believe it has an O-ring under it so it really doesn't have to be that tight to seal. On mine I found the vent check bad and pushing fuel up the vent tube into the frame. I just did a How To on putting an inline check valve in.
