I have tried tightening by hand the plug seem to turn in both directions without tightening I assume its the o ring seal or just loose. How is the plug secured.

Do you mean the big plug in the center of the bowl?

If so be very careful with it it has plastic parts, I could make a foto in the morning ( in in the middle of the night now in Holland)

I am buzzy refurbishing 2 now.

There is a o ring seal.

If the plastic plug on the very bottom center of the bowl is leaking, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR CAR. the rear carb sits right over the starter/solenoid, and it would be INSTANT FIRE.
If you haven't rebuilt the carbs in a while or run the car in a while, just rebuild the carbs(takes me 5-6 hours).

Thanks for all the information. Luckily I noticed the leak before I got the car started. It was the front carb. I have ordered the o rings. How difficult is it to pull the plug out. Should I jut order a new one?

The top one, is easy but becarvul, clean outside, spray some tread lube around, wait a bit and with a small screwdriver pull it out. Not on one side but around so I comes strait out.

If you miss some plastic parts you have to open the bottom.

The big kopper one is ideal when you want to replace the jet.

If the bottom o-ring is leaking, then other rubber parts may be going bad as well. I recommend taking off the top on one of the carbs and check the condition of the rubber diaphragm. If it looks to be going bad, you might want to get a couple rebuild kits.

I found out dat also the rubber seals from the throttle axle were shot.
So I would advice a full refurbishment of the carbs to.
