Carb float question


Recommended Posts

The original needle seat seal on my '16 finally wore through. I replaced it with a new one but still can't stop gas coming out the top when the car is at rest. As long as the motor is running it seems fine. I've tried raising the seat but then the float has little room to function. Should there be a gasket or sealant to prevent the overfow? or am I missing somethng else? Thanks!

Sure wish I were going to join some of you at Keizer but my plans fell through.

I have heard from guys that have used these viton tips that they are no good. They say that eventually the fuel will break down the material, soften it and eventually it will come apart and you will have a mess. They went back to steel needles and only recommend these. Knowing where that info came from I lean toward believing it myself.
