    Is that an AN fitting (a positonable 90) or a NPT fitting and bushing. If it is a AN fitting all you need is a off the shelf o-ring. If it is NPT use a combination of yellow Teflon tape or graphite impregnated Teflon tape, and high-pressure Teflon pipe dope my brand of choice is Lock-tight PST. White Teflon tape is for water not gas.
