Default Question for those who have installed Tick Remote Speed Bleeder...

I've got a C5 that I just put a Monster clutch/Tick MC in and while I was in there I put a new slave and speed bleeder in. To install the speedbleeder, I just pulled the stock one out, got the new one, put the brass washer down, then the fitting and tightened. Is that it? The stock one looked like it had a thread sealant on it, but apparently it's not needed with the Tick? The Tick seems to use a brass washer instead? Here's a picture of it installed. I just don't want it to leak, and want to make sure that I installed it correctly.

That copper washer is actually a seal. Same type as your brake calipers. Makes sense since you're dealing the same fluid

mines is leaking. Installed exactly like the pic and directions say to do. I would tighten the thing down and / or put some sealant or another washer!!! Now I got to pull my trans back out. Was around 400 miles into the break in. Hopefully clutch is ok!

Isn't there normally a conical npt thread on the line, instead of a flat sealing surface which requires a washer?

Yes on the stock bleeder it is conical. On this line/ fitting the washer is what is used to seal.
