Question on Toro S-200 Carb.

[IMG][/IMG]

This is the bottom cover of a carb for Toro #38120 (s-200)
Carb # 631887 for Tecumseh engine.
In part # 23 (cutway) you see the plastic fitting that the
primer hose attaches to.
Part # 22 is the diaphragm.
The engine runs fine but when I stop it I can feel gas where
the plastic fitting attaches to the cover plate ( # 23 ).
Is this type of carb. supposed to have gas under the
diaphragm?
If so--what can I use to seal this fitting that gas will not eat thru?

No, there should be no fuel below the diaphragm at the primer hose bib. I think you may need to replace the diaphragm, it must have a leak.

Replaced diaphragm (new ) as I took it off---gasket-diaphragm-cover plate. ( top to bottom )
Engine would only run 5 seconds & quit.
Took off cover plate & set gasket under Diaphragm--
diaphragm-gasket-cover plate.
Engine started immed & runs like new--paper thin gasket made all the difference.........................
