Nice answers, I did not know about the vent hole on the top.

Here is a hint: If you use JB weld, cover it with a thin layer of super-glue. The JB I have in the garage is not resistant to alcohol (but it is gas proof). Super glue is resistant to both.

I once repaired a crack in the carb bowl of my dinghy outboard with JB sealed in superglue. Six months later it was still going strong, but I swapped it out for one from a parts motor.

Thumbs up Thanx

Mike, thanx I knew of the issues with JB and alchohol and keep JB & JB kwik in my ditty box at all times and now I'll add super glue. Learn somthin' new here on the forum quite often.

Do you know if the super glue will stand up to kerosene or diesel?

Cyanoacrylate (the chemical name for most brands of super glue) is resistant to kerosene and most oils.
