Have a speed demon 650 & today it smelled like gas when I was driving. looked at the carb float level & the primary was very low. Below the first line. I had set them at the middle. Tried to adjust the needle & seat & noticed the washer below the adjuster nut & screw was falling apart. Not sure if it was leaking gas while I was driving, but after trying to get the float to raise I noticed it wouldn't go up much & the gas just kept leaking out from the top. I had to tighten it down pretty good to stop the gas from leaking.Wondering if I could use a plumbers O-ring to fix this. I need to drive it Sunday, so a temp fix until I can get the part would be great. Any ideas? All the parts store around me don't stock demon parts. Would another brand like holley work?
