Hello. My 78 has an hitachi DCH340 carb. It has developed a problem with the fuel inlet valve and gasket that screws into the side of the bowl assembly. It works loose to the point that I can turn it by hand. Gas is leaking all around it, and of course the truck won’t start. It has a gasket under it (round fiber washer) but it seems to actually sit on the corner of the “gauge level” cover, and does not fully seat on the bowl assembly. I am attempting to attach a couple of pics, but photobucket does not seem to be cooperating. I luv my little truck and miss driving it to Dairy Queen!
Any suggestions are appreciated. — mark
