300E coolant tank

On my 300E the coolant tank is brand new. Where the cap screws down to the tank, you can turn the part where it screws down to about 1/8 of a turn. Is this normal? I didn't remember this problem with the old one.

On a coolant test if you pressurize the system to 15 psi, how much can leak out in one hour. Would 1 psi of leak account for the problem described above.

No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
