Fixing a Coil Fork that is Leaking Oil/Air

Where is it leaking?  Not the valve, but around the top.

He removed the top with the crank puller and brought it up...saying "I think I can fix this."  After explaining how the mechanism works with a rubber gasket at the top of the screwed-on cap I suggested plumbers tape for a fit that was more snug. 

Verdict = no air or oil leaking yet. 

Perhaps photos will follow after a few rides.
