Hi All,

I'm rebuilding a carb for my 82 pickup. The original strainer is damaged (plastic ring which seals over the valve seat is cracked). The replacement is not in any rebuild kit I can find. It is also not available as a standalone part.

Is this part absolutely necessary? Can I have the same effect by adding some type of inline filter between the fuel pump and the carb? If it is necessary, can I use liquid gasket to patch the part?

Thanks for any advice,
Matt

A good quality inline filter between the pump and the carb will do the same job as the screen. As far as patching the old part with liquid gasket, I would think twice about that. These products often have trouble with gasoline, and I have seen carbs clogged because of it.

Good luck, Mike

Hey Mike. Thanks for the response. I'll heed that warning and not try to patch the screen. Even in it's broken state, it might stop some stuff from getting into the carb. Any recommendations for an inline filter?
