leaking out of my electronic 3-way

i dont know why this seems totaly random for it to leak from their but it is. i had a complete spare new electronic 3-way with a new rubber seal. i put some dow-33 grease on it and it still leaks.

is their something special im supposed to put on to make it seal properly?? i noticed when i took out the old one it seemed like their was some type of glue to seal it???

Perhaps your LPR is set too high?

ya i think that may have been a reason. i have a mq2 valve in so i had turn up the lpr but now its leaks as soon as i put any pressure through the lpr.
ive never seen any instructions on what to use on the gasket to make it seal??

wait, what's the relation between higher LPR and MQ valve? LPR do not affect the mq.

Why on earth would you turn up the REGULATOR that helps it RECOCK if there is NO MAIN SPRING for it to force against..? All you need the LPR to do is have enough pressure to move the bolt and sled/back block around. Typically 50 or so PSI

You make the gasket seal by tightening the screws properly. Dont really need to grease them.

Turn your LPR down.

no relation to the mq to the leaking "5-WAY" gasket seal. i had my lpr turned up from when it had the stock set up. but a lpr supposed to leak at 60psi as a safety. when i first took the solenoid out and the looked at the gasket it appeared it had glue on the gasket to seal the two parts together.
but i did get the new 5way gasket to seal with some dow33 and tightening the screws as tight as i could without stripping the heads out.
seems like just 2 screws makes for a bad seal. should be a minimum of 4

The shouldnt be tightened down that far honestly. Just enough to get the gasket sealed.
