Mower siphon tube

I have a Poulan Weedeater lawn mower with a Briggs&Stratton 4.5 horse motor. Problem is that the gasoline siphon tube that goes from the gas tank to the bottom of the carb keeps falling off into the gas tank due to vibration etc. Would you guys suggest any adhesive (ie. superglue) to fix this permanently in place? I'm not too sure buying a new tube is gonna fix this as the bottom of the carb hole may be worn slightly.
Thanks, Dave

You could buy a whole new carb assembly for little $$. I guess it wouldn't hurt trying to superglue it first to see if it works.
