Having swapped out the jet for one I had in my spare box I had no leak so I put the original jet back and no leak. I moved the jet up and down and suddenly it leaked again then noticed the jet bearing moved a bit. Tightened the large nut a further flat and no leak. I thought I had it tight before.
I will check the tightness again in the morning.

Oh the fuel line looks fun David, I even see some electrical in there. Are you selling it on EBay. Anyways I have had the same problem with the large cork gasket. I think Joe wanted them soaked in oil, but I cannot remember. There is hardly any fuel pressure maybe 2 to 4 lbs so they are kinda gravity leaks. Sounds to me like you have it; they just take time to get correct.

The electrical was from the non working electric pump. The power feed to the pump had beer run between the floor and frame.
