Is there suppose to be a sealer put on the threads of my old pickup to this new melling pump i have ? And what is the best way to determine how many turns or how tight the pickup should be to the pump. Can I crank this tube around with vise grips, what is the best way. thx

The pick-up tube usually goes on with just the paper gasket, no sealer on it or the threads. By the way... WHY are you asking about "Can I crank this tube around with vise grips..."?
