That stupid little round plug, which is a little smaller than a dime, has fallen out of my carb.  I've been trying to use silicone to hold a dime over the hole, but it keeps wearing out.  Does anyone know of a replacement or something that WORKS (like maybe even a rubber cork) that I can get to fix this problem once and for all?

 

Please help!  It's driving my batty!

 

Thanks.

JB Weld is what I have seen most commonly used.

 I used the 2 part putty ( JB weld ) and it is still working well for nearly 4 years that pesky little plug came put of my new  carb just a month after I put it in. After a little panic I tried this and it worked.

Did you guys use a dime or something else as the plug or just a glob of JB Weld?

The ones I have seen usually use the original plug, a dime, or a slug that was cut down to fit.

I used a dime over the hole.  We'll see how it works.
