Miller Gun model fs-ls leaking

New to this trailer that the furnace is in, in fact new to trailers in general.

Bought it to refurbish and fired up the furnace today and all went well except that I discovered a extremely slow leak at the bleeder and possibly two large screws at the bottom of the chamber that the fuel line goes into.

Pretty old unit 1975ish and hadnt been fired up for at least a year possibly years.

is a replacement of the bleeder and the other screws the answer or the whole black thing they are part of?

Thanks much for any info.

Matt

Most likely the fuel you see dripping from the plugs in the bottom of the pump is coming from the leaking bleeder. Try taking a 3/8" wrench & tightening the bleeder.

Yeah thats what Im hoping. Didnt have time to go back out to the trailer today but Im hoping its dry. If not do you suppose a new bleeder would be worth a shot?

thanks by the way, great site.

A new bleeder, if you can find one, is certainly cheaper than a new pump.
