Re: teflon tape okay to use on carb?
Fuel eats white teflon tape/silicone after a little while so even if it seals at 1st it will leak later on.
Use permatex #1 thread sealer that's resistant to fuel/oil/solvents ,apply it as instructed on pkg and let dry overnight before firing up the motor,that should hopefully stop fuel leaking past threads.
