    hello

    this phrase is discussing the reconnection of fuel pipe connections in a car:

    - serrer à fond de filet et à la main (...les raccords des tubes...)

    really not sure - but here goes

    - tighten (the connections) by hand right down to the shaft

    any help would be appreciated - thanks

    Filet is thread, as in a nut / bolt.
    Meaning you have to screw the joints manually, going to the limit of the thread.
