I have a marvel sheibler carb that I can't get the needle valve to seat. Is their a trick to seat it on instalation. The float is set right. I'm useing a TISCO kit, with the cheap rubber tip needle. I shut the gas off , but sometimes I forget and the air cleaner hose is full of gas.

If you have got the seat tight then take out the new seat and put the old one back in if it looks good and not rusty.I assume your float is bouyant. CENTAUR

Tim, chances are you will not get a good 100% long term seal on that needle valve. That valve was intended to control fuel level in your carb bowl, not to be a fuel shut-off. You gravity flow fuel sys. provides pressure against that needle valve all the time. Nature of the beast, which is why you have that gas shut-off valve on the tank.
You can fiddle with the carb some more, but you may never get a long term 100% shut-off. I used to get good shut-off from the needle valve before I rebuilt it. I took out a solid brass needle valve and installed the new seat & rubber tipped needle valve pin that comes in kits now days... now I get leakage & have to close my shut-off valve. I wish I had kept that old brass needle valve!
