Default Re: fuel line

Is the barb fitting cracked?
Is the line on the vent and not the inlet

The barbed inlet fitting (brass piece) is just press fitted into the carb. I was replacing lines on mine this weekend and accidentally pulled that piece out of the carb body when removing the old fuel line. I pressed it back into it's spot and gave it a couple raps with a rubbererized screw driver handle. Might should've put some epoxy or locktight on it as suggested above before sending it home with the screwdriver handle, but it seems to be on there pretty good now. I tried to pull it out and couldn't so I think it's alright. Maybe yours is pulling out some and leaking?

I'd hold off on buying a new carburetor. There's really nothing to these and very little that can fail. Check the post below. If it sounds familiar you might have some bad gas. I just went through this.

Again that carb is about as simple as they get. Plugged jets, passageways, or buggered up needle/seats is about all that can be bad on it. Chances of a bad needle/seat are pretty slim unless someone went crazy with a screwdriver and cranked it down tight. Probably a plugged orifice or jet and a little carb cleaner, a can of compressed air shot into the orifices etc. should fix you right up.

Bad gas and cleaning carb
