What is the correct way to repair the plug that is just before the transfer tube? (Holley spreadbore, non adjustable float) Did they put this blank in so that some models could have adjustments without removing the bowls? I have always just used JB kwik. But yesterday the gas finally ate its way though after years of the cold weld working. I have seen these plugs seal up on there own sometimes after sitting dry for a log time. I was thinking that ultra black silicone might be better, or just tap and thread it with a nylon gasket.

Just primer

The plugs rust and they seal with an o-ring.....when that goes bad it's time to replace.

Can't those things be converted to center pivot float bowls pretty easily? :-k That would make them much better, IMHO as you'd have externally adjustable floats then. :-k
