Nu50 Mikuni jet-bolt leaking.

So, a few days ago, I noticed fuel leaking out of the bolt on the carb that holds the jet. I tighten it, and it breaks. I have a replacement bolt arriving soon. My question is, how can I keep it from eventually leaking again? Just a simple washer? What about high temps? Locktite?

Thanks.

Bolt that hold the jet? What? Do you mean a quick change plug in the float bowl? Your description is strange.

a 1/4" o ring will work in a pinch as well, so long as you don't overtighten the bolt and squeeze it out.
