hawks has a really nice reproduction steam pipe with banjo bolts and seals. I can screw up just about anything so im worried i attached it wrong. I put a little silicone grease on the seals before tightening and one slipped a bit to one side of the fitting.

How tight should the bolts be tightened?? I probably hit 20lbs...

Should the seals be installed dry? Im concerned it shifted because it was lubricated or perhaps overtightened.

Should thread locker be applied to the bolts?

I will remove the bolts and try again later today. Hopefully i did not damage them during initial install..
