I have an early single line system, this is the brake light switch at
the 4-way junction, I don't have a pressure differential switch.

Well, I beg to differ, because it did fix the very slow leak around the
switch. Perhaps it didn't come with a washer that it should have. The
previous switch (which lasted only a few months, can you say POS?) did
not leak. Maybe the threads got damaged.
Anyway, if someone can tell me definatively that the tape reacts badly
with brake fluid, then I won't use it. Otherwise, my paint job takes
priority in "emergency" situations.
