My 97 leaks fuel past the float pin

Original Stromberg drawings don’t call for a seal here, even though it’s below the fuel line. There’s just a small seat and a fine thread. Try tightening the screw (but remember that it’s not meant to be flush with the casting), or add a super-light smear of sealant/instant gasket on the thread. Just don’t get any inside the fuel bowl.
