carb repair

hey i was wondering if there is any thing i could do to repair a diaphragm for a 2 stroke carb instead of buying a repair kit..... there is a little tear in the diaphragm letting air get out so it doesn't create vaccuum on the fuel pump

would some kind of glue work?

thanks

you need to buy a repair kit $5-$10.

Correct...no glue. It is in gas. Glues won't hold and will probably wind up gumming up the orfices in the carb, potentially ruining it. If you just need a diaphragm you can probably get one for 1 or 2 bucks at a small engine shop. That's cheap enough, right?

Ahh...I see. Unfortunately, it looks like you'll have to take the trip. Take the old one with you so you can verify you have the right one. (I'm sure that's what you had planned on anyway, but thought I'd mention it).
