I lapped the needle and seat with permatex lapping compound and it stopped the major leaking.Now it only drips out of the small overfill tube. I’ll try lapping more and try to come up with way to shorten the float travel, not sure if that c-clip will stay in position on the needle if not in the groove. Maybe a small washer under the clip will work. , if not I’m debating whether to buy the rebuild kit for $30 or a brand new original carb that needs slightly modified by filing the mounting holes for $80. What’s your opinion? Thanks again for the advice I’ll try lapping again this morning.
