    I've found recently that there is gas leaking out of the "tickler" (aka primer) of my HT. Can someone please tell me whether there is a quick-fix or do I have to buy a new carby...?

    Thanks all!!!

    hey i've never used the tickler and it leaked so i took the bowl off removed the little cotter pin and took the tickler off then i put a wood screw inth the plastic and tightened it up making sure it didn't interfere with anything inside now ....no leaks works great

    Thanks Wayde!--a good suggestion! I've heard on this site that the tickler is "no good" and "just for looks," so I'm sure I can do without...

    Upon looking further, it definitely was the tickler...what size of screw did you put in yours???

    Wayde--Thanks for the quick-fix! It only cost me $.07. However, now I still can't get it started, so I'm going to keep troubleshooting--no more leakage, though!!! :grin::grin::grin:
