I mistakenly loosened my lower condenser connection, then immediately tightened it again. A few months later, my air conditioning stopped cooling. When I re-tightened the connection to the condenser I may have over-tightened it because I stopped feeling a definite resistance. My question is, now that I'm going to install a new drier and connect to the condenser at the same place where I over-tightened the connection, could I use some sort of "lock tight" on the threads, in case they were stripped and in case that's the location of my very small leak? Thank you and any information would be appreciated.
The only place for thread sealer is NPT threads. The threads on flared/compression/etc fittings do not provide any of the sealing. Fix it right the first time.

If the threads are stripped you have two options. Have a new end welded on the condenser or buy a new condenser.
Thanks guys. That's what I was afraid of. Won't know until I get the new drier and install. Thank you very much for the information. By-the-way, is there a torque for that connection? Thanks,
