Air filter elbow to carb seal
« on: August 31, 2013, 07:51:36 PM »
Guys, I noticed the elbow on top of the carb has a felt type seal in it.
Anyone find a source for these?

i need this to.
i spent alot of time looking for a felt ring but this just a straight length rolled in there.
i found this out by crossing the ord 9 book ord number.

use 1/8" x 1/4" felt
this is also the same size used on the brake shoe lower pivot points.


there are many different grades (stiffness)
the only one i have found in this size is F7 which is soft, i dont know how soft.

here is 10 foot for $1
sold by Zoro Tools
