Default V-Spec fuel nipple coming lose

3 times now when ive been adjusting the HSN on my V-Spec the fuel nipple/HSN housing comes lose and i need to tighten it, how much can i tighten it and can it be over tightened? It seems to happen after the engine gets some heat into it.

Thanks for any advice.

Make sure you have brass washers sandwiching the "nipple" hehe

Also i seal my HSN with Lucky 7 Rc engine seal
