Most of the time I find the fuel line connection is the leak, but it could be the elbow.

They can crack or have worn out threads, dirt in them keeping the line from seating, etc.
If needed, you can buy just the elbow with a new screen.

Its also possible that someone over tightened that elbow and
cracked the carb, but lets hope not!

Thanks Royse. I did get a new elbow. But I'll be smarter this time.

one trick you cab do ont hat flair to carb line is loosen/remove the arb.. get the line on perfect.. then install the carb.. make the line bend after it is tight and square.

trying to get the fitting correct when not squre is almost imposivble and have it leak free for that type of fitting.. but getting it tight and sealed first.. works fine..
