Just got off the lake. Motor start acting like it was running at half power. Stopped and looked and gas was pouring out of the cowling. Probably ran a mile or so before I stopped to look.

Got home and popped the cowling and squeezed the bulb and gas was coming out of the carb. Looked in the bottom and there is the plug bolt and washer off the side of the carb.

I have put the plug bolt back in and looking at the diagrams it appears that there is a jet in front of the plug bolt. Am I reading the drawings wrong?

How disastrous could this have been?

Second issue since my carbs were rebuilt, the guy also put the linckage to the oil pump on wrong. Need a better mechanic in San Angelo.

Thank you sir. I didn't even check if the jet was in there, can't imagine it wiggled out. Will check that in the morning, better safe then sorry. All others bolts were tight.
