If anyone's seen any of my posts, you already know I'm totally new to all of this, so take this with a grain of salt. However, when you said that you tightened all of the "bolts" that got me thinking. When you use butyl, you should not tighten or rotate the bolts, you should tighten the nuts. Perhaps that's what you meant. When you tighten the bolts, you rotate the threads in the already compressed, sticky butyl and you can create voids and tears. The idea is to compress the butyl in and around the chamfers with direct downward pressure by tightening the nuts on the other side.

If I'm stating the obvious, forgive me... just trying to repay all the help I'VE received here.
