I counter sunk the plates holes on the brass side just enough that the now chamfered holes sit “around” the brass thread sockets rather than on them. This got around the interference that the brass threads were creating.

No leaks ever.

I don’t have pictures, clear as mud?
That's a great idea. If mine leaks at all I'll remove it and dremel the plate down a bit so that the gasket squishes before the metal to metal contact occurs


Have you had any other leaking issues?
