I also had this trouble. I just used thread tape on the threads and that sealed it up for me.
As for the LPR being loose and the asa leaking I'll need more details to try to help you with those..
Oh no no, I don't need help with anything other than o-ring size. I can try to size it up, but I just thought I would see if anyone has an actual number.
I have everything else fixed, and I only use Dow 55. I did pack the o-ring area with Dow 55, and it does seal - for now. I simply do not anticipate that being a permanent fix. I must get that o-ring changed out to properly fix it.
I was tempted to use my pipe dope on the threads, but again, I would prefer a proper O-ring as well.
