'85 TE - Carb leak from a bolt

Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

I was just doing some minor work on the carbs today (balancing) and as I was finishing up, saw a small amount of liquid around the head of the nut labelled in the picture. I cleaned it up, tightened it up, and checked the other three. This is the carb right over the dizzie !!


  1. Are these bolts susceptible/liable to work their way loose?
  2. Is there a safe/practical way to use some type of glue/fixant to prevent this loosening, whilst still retaining possible access?

As usual, TIA

Is it the pump jet holder - I serviced/balanced mine recently but don't recall any weeping from from this screw.

The link below will allow you to confirm the part - I'd be wary of using anything extra to secure or seal it.
