    I just ordered a part that puts gas in my carb b/c my other one broke and was leaking. But when I ordered the part I ordered the wrong thing and the people at the hobby shop gave me a different one and it doesn't look like it will fit. would it leak? and if so how can I stop it?

    Just get one the right size, I would get a metal one. They are crack resistant. Just make sure you put a washer on both sides of it, or it will leak.

    It needs to be the right size or it will probably leak.

    But won't the washers keep it from leaking?

    If you already have it, try it, but if it's too big it might leak even with the washers.

    It's good for bottom end, the slide has a smoother midrange and topend.
