Hi I have a 1987 60 that is leaking fuel at the connection from the fuel line to the threaded nipple at my carburetor. It looks like it is on the fuel line side. I was wondering what sort of gasket is used to get a good seal there. I replaced the copper crush gasket at my carb and that didn't fix the problem. Thanks

On the fuel pipe there is what toyota calls an "olive". I call it a ferrule for a compression fitting. There is also a sealing washer between the inlet fitting and the carb body. You should first try to snug both up. Loosen the compression fitting nut, then tighten the inlet fitting, then re-tighten the compression fitting nut.

Good Luck.
