OK, this ought to be simple. I bought a new gas shutoff valve and a new pre-bent fuel line for my 8N; the old valve was shot and the old fuel line had a bad crimp in it. I replaced the old with new and now have a considerable gas leak where the fuel line goes into the brass inlet/filter at the carb. I have the line as "straight" and "lined up" as I can. The plug into the carb is tight (and not cross-threaded). But I have a bad leak. I even used some pipe thread compound on the plug. The leak appears to come up the threads of the plug; and not between the fuel line and the plug.
Is it possible that I need to replace the brass inlet on the carb? I"m wondering if anyone else has run into this issue and solved it.
