    Fuel Leak at inlet elbow of carburator

    My 99 TW has a fuel leak at the fuel inlet elbow on the carburetor. Has anyone else had this issue and how do you fix it? I have confirmed it is not the hose nor the bowl gasket, it is definitely leaking at the elbow to carb interface.

    The only thing I can think of is using JB Weld around it, that should seal it up.

    That is what I was afraid of. There is also an epoxy called proseal 890 made to seal aircraft fuel tank leaks I am going to try and get if I can't find another solution.
