I worked the 8n hard last night for about 30 minutes or so and I think I got it right. Good power under heavy load; no fuel starvation signs (governor hunt/ rough running/ surging), and a smooth throttle up or down is about right. There may have been a bit of crud in the carburetor that came loose after the cleaner in a can and guitar wire went through it. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I seated the elbow deeper with Permatex #2 form a gasket to stop leaks. I let it set up for about 24 hours and that too seems to have held.
I will have to add some rubber shims to the new tank due to the rattle the hood and tank now have, but that is a minor affair.
The gas is probably good but I will change again next winter and drain the tank out completely when I winterize in November. In the winter of 11-12 I drained it---no problems. In the winter of 12-13 I filled the tank to the brim with treated gas. Carburetor was, of course, drained both times.
