The foam is a good idea, I just took the shortest working path to I saw, which was the non-curing caulk. I will know in about a week how well it works, after I slice and dice a few more ash trees.

the fuel is going to turn that caulk into liquid mush.
it will make a mess.

Ive run at least 6 tanks of fuel through this saw, since I "gasketed" the air filter with "seasonseal". The caulk cured more than I thought it would, it completely sealed the filter, I have no dust on the back side of the carb, and the air filter didnt take more than a couple pounds of lift to remove it ( came apart easily). The gasket was dry, and very easily removed from the air filter body. I will re-gasket with "new" caulk, to close it back up.

Either fuel didnt get to it, or fuel does not bother it, for it was dry, and appeared totally un-affected.

Consider it a lucky and ideal "work around". At least I didnt break the filter, filter body, or the carb back side with a truly sticky caulk, like the stuff I use in the shop for bigger motor work. Ive got polyurethane caulk you can BARELY cut with a brand new razor, the stuff is so tough, and the stuff makes most glues look bad. Sticks to damn near anything but straight water.
