B&S Needle and Seat

Have ordered a carb kit and float for my Pressure washer Briggs and Stratton engine 6HP OHV. Mdl 120612 0132. Runs OK but while sitting gas keeps flowing through the carb. When I had it apart I could not see the seat. It must be there, but wondering how I remove it and install the new one.

You can blow it out with compressed air by puting air gun to fuel line nipple or pull it out useing a small crochet needle.Make sure in puting the new one in that the rings on it point towards carb.

Thanks repair guy. Did the repair today. Looks like the outside ring was a little distorted and was not sealing on the bottom of the hole. I think it has always leaked since I got it. In my new garage with a natural gas heater it made me a little nervous. No leak so far, guess time will tell.
