Carb leak on Tecumseh HSSK50

I have a small drip that looks like it is coming from the fuel inlet fitting on the carb. Does anyone know how to remove this fitting from the carb body? Never took one out. What keeps it from leaking? Carb # Tec-640084. Engine # hssk50-67364S.

Replace the Gas Line First.

Hi Dave9354
If it is a plastic fuel inlet fitting, just remove it with pliers and when you are putting it back in, use red locktite on the knurled parts of the fitting. That's what I always do and have never had one leak. If it is metal then I'm not sure what you can do.

If it's the plastic fitting don't twist it to remove it. That will split the plastic and you will need to replace it. Pull straight away from the carb body if you are going to remove it at all.

There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!

I think this is the carb you're talking about. As mentioned above I'd make sure it's not the fuel line or clamp causing the problem before you try to pull that fitting out of the carb.

if plastic inlet is cracked u can replace it or just buy a china clone complete carb from ebay or amazon, getting it will take time though. hopefully its just the fuel line thats cracked.

search utube for "fixing the plastic fuel inlet Carburetor tecumseh"

or use "Carburetor 640084" for ebay/amazon"

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

It ended up being a leaking fuel inlet. Put silicone around the valve and it has stopped leaking. Quick fix. New carb is only 9.00. Should be here Friday. problem solved!
