    The O ring did the trick for me on the plug, but I have not been able to seal those selector shafts very good over the years. What did you use Graham or where did you get them?

    I would say if the shifter goes all the way around then the shifter is busted. The narrow section on the bottom keys into the leakage with flat side, and I do think it will go around and around if...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Carburetors again, and again, and again
