Anyone familiar with the Gurtner Jet assembly?

Hey,

I reaassembled my carb only to find that it leaked like crazy from under the jet. There are 3 brass parts that fit together in the jet assembly. I re-assembled them just as I had taken them apart. At first I thought I lost a gasket or something but after looking at the diagram here in the resource section, I see that there are no gaskets.

I made one out of an old inner tube and it sealed it up well, and it works great. BUT, I'm a bit worried about the rubber breaking down over time AND still cant figure out why it leaked in the first place.

Anyone who's familiar with this carb, please help!

I have seen fiber washers on those. Now whether or not they come with them from the factory, I don't know.

There are no washers. The carb threads or the threads on the brass jet could be stripped. This would cause a leak like the one you are experiencing.
