Thanks for the reply 660. The tip on the needle seemed flexible. Hard for me to judge. Found some opinions on leaking "Welch" plugs which is what apparently what I was refering to in my initial post. They say it can be sealed with nail polish? I guess the ethanol in our new and improved gas formulations eats the origional sealant. Wonder how JB weld would hold up immersed in gasolene. New carb on ebay~$45.00 and never store with gas in the carb? Kind of a pain to do that to all my seasonal / infrequently used / collection of tools. ( 15+ 2 strokes) I do use Stabil and have had good luck with it. Maybe this one was just due to fail and wasn't bad gas as I initially suspected. Anyone else have good storage tips? Thanks....Ed
