OK I found one of those self-tapping nuts and it cut its own threads in the carb fitting...so it screwed in fine...thing is it seals externally and the original nut is designed to seal internally. I had to use a Neoprene O-ring along with the included gasket to make it hold.
Does anyone know if Neoprene is OK to use on a gas line? I know rubber will dissolve, but I'm pretty sure Neoprene is OK...anyone know for sure?
I wish someone made an OEM replacement for that carb...Edelbrock makes Q-Jets, but not computer controlled replacements.
