Joe........its supposed to leak there. Up-draught carbs are weird. Yer 2-chamber float is supposed to seal the needle valve, but many times the BEHIND the float valve seat LEAKS. Ya really gotter whomp down on the float seat. You need BROAD HOLLOW-GROUND gun-smithing screwdriver that will fit BOTH slots at the sametime. Most broad screwdrivers are "V" wedge'd shaped and waller out the notches of the seat. Some use a broken bitt of hacksaw blade in a "VISE-GRIP" and use that to tighten the float seat. (tip: hold the broad V-bladed screwdriver to the side of yer 6-in bench grinder, and mak'er "hollow-ground"; simple, eh?)

BTW.....the original M/S carb drain was "felt", held in by "C"-ring. The sinstered bronze drain was a WW2 invention for fighter airplanes in South Pacific. .........Dell

Dell: Thanks for that useful info. I hollow-ground a big screwdriver and it worked like a charm. Problem solved.
I love readin" about WWII fighter planes, so it"s good to know how that little plug came about.

Thanks again, Joe

OT: Dell.....I know a retired WWII airplane engineer, Mr. Bill Ford, who discovered this:

The landing gear was initially so "streamlined" that the landing gear would not extend until someone drilled a few holes in the "gear doors" to break the vacuum in the wheel wells. Lots of bent-up airplanes, initially. The P-51's came through with the holes pre-drilled.
