There was some discussion on warped castings some time back. You might have
one of these. The fix was to take the pump apart and using a large file
flatten (true up) the gasket surfaces.
I don't see why you couldn't use locktite on the threads of the screws.
You might want to contact the vendor that sold you the pump for suggestions.
I have a '66 Sport Sedan with a freshly rebuilt 140. My mechanical fuel
pump is 4 months old (2500 miles). I've had to tighten the top screws on it
3 times because it starts leaking after a while. Is this a common ailment
with mechanical fuel pumps? Is there a cure? Has anyone tried to take the
top screws off and put lok-tite on the threads? Is there a good (better)
mechanical fuel pump to replace this "new" pump? I don't want to go with an
electric fuel pump.
If this is a question that has been asked to death, please indulge me
because I'm fairly new here. The last time I asked a question I received a
derogatory and insulting reply because I asked something that had been
discussed a lot in the past.
