hi, i have a 1980 batavus m-48. i would like to know if i should tighten the 10mm bolts, as tight as can be, or leave them snug(as they are right). i have fuel coming out after traveling about 1 mile, it not much but this is probably why it stalls out after operating for about a mile.( (starts right up w/ the choke) this is a dicontinued carb, and i want to find out if the bolts are snug , not over-tightened should i locate something for the gasket. thanks, -tim
