Dude look at the pic-

albow JB Weld is two part epoxy that can be used to repair a leaky gas tank. Might work better for you than superglue.

I agree the part should be replaced.

Authorized Strikemaster repair shop is Area Renta-Alls 7900 N. Federal Blvd. in Westminster.

lake1177 Yep. Same thing happened to my Strikemaster last year. The nipple was cracked, and super glue did not work. Ordered one on Amazon. $5.95 for two. wish I could remember the seller. You really should replace it.

checkers8 Just as I suspected. Crack at the base of the nipple which is the inlet of the carb. I cleaned and applied super glue. I'll let it sit for a few day to see if the leak is gone.

Okay so checked fuel lines and all look good and clamps are secure.

Left it stored for a few days with the screw on cap loose.

Just checked it now and no signs of fuel or leaks where previously seen. SMH

I'm thinking small crack in plastic nipple where fuel enters carb and requires pressure to force fuel thru crack.

This is based on seeing this with my older Mag III and the nipple dried out and cracked. Fixed this issue with super glue.

I will continue to observe and see what I find.

ZMAN I like your thinking, but just hate to pony up the $$$$.
