    Gas resistant epoxy / glue ???

    I have a small engine that the float in the carburetor went bad. So, I found a set of plastic floats that fit & used JB weld to attach them to the arms. It lasted about 2 weeks & the JB weld fell apart...
    Anyone know what I could use that will hold up to gas ???

    Never hears of that, but I will investigate !!!
    Someone said 3M has something too...
    I'd buy a new float, but they don't make this one any more...

    Some of the best stuff i've ever used at my old dealership I used to work at was called Duramix by 3M. About $50 for the stuff but it's worth it and they should have something for your needs.

    No prob. There's a couple different kinds so make sure of which one you're getting and make sure that it is gas resistant. And you only have about 15 seconds to get it set correctly or you may as well buy a new carb cause it'll never come back off.
