I've found the only time the four o-rings on the brass 90-degree elbows leak is when the carbs have been off for a length of time. Upon turning the engine stop switch to "run" & the fuel pump running, they leak.

However waiting several hours (overnight usually) when you try again the o-rings don't leak. Seems the gasoline causes them to swell & they fix themselves... DAMHIK

CJ, good to know you've got the o-rings in stock, they're tricky to find!!!

take your time & all should go well; make sure you use a quality screwdriver so you don't damage the Phillips scews.
