    Good Gaskets and a little refrigeration oil, Make sure to clean the surfaces real well, thats how I always do it.

    ps If you have a deep scratch in the flange then loctite I hear is good, I usally propose a new
    flange or service valve.
    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.

    The old timer that i worked with did not like puting oil on gaskits because if he ever had to replace them in the future they would be baked on and be harder to remove.I don't use oil unless i knew gaskits were leaking in the past.I wounder if there is differance.
