I worked on the sediment bowl on MH44 yesterday. It was dripping, so I tightened it up good. Came out this morning and it had shattered and was laying all over the floor.

I had the gas shutoff.

It did stop when I tightened it up, by hand, but then shattered during the night. It was a new bowl probably made in china.

One time my dad's Cub Loboy had a dead battery. So he stuck hand crank in and nearly bent it. Stuck engine? Nope. Engine was full to the top with gas that flowed through a flooding carb for days.

A cork gasket should be soaked in water or kerosene before using.I would check a new glass bowl on a flat suface.

Really? I have always applied them dry.

Paper gaskets, however, I usually coat with something.

An Indian motorcycle mechanic told me about wetting cork gaskets in the 50s.He was right.Cork gaskets shink with age.I have used 40 weight oil on paper gaskets.Plymouth engines used aluminum thermostat housings that warped and I have found paper gaskets that wicked coolant thru the the paper.Sealant on the flat surfaces didnt work.A cork gasket cushions the glass bowls.Flat neoprene gaskets dont work well.
