Carb leaking

Hi Folks,
So I recently redid all fuel lines on my 08' FE 450 & have no leaks minus the brass fitting that swivels attached to the carb itself.
There must be an o ring that needs to be replaced & Im seeing that theres no retainer on the outside. This tells me it'll likely be a c clip or whatnot on the inside of the carb to extract that lil guy.

OK, question 2, I have another carb from an 06' FS650 sitting here, is it a larger ID than the 450 carb or can I just quickly swap them while getting the correct seal for the other carb ?

Thanks in advance ----Proflow

What carb? Assuming it's the FCR41 ...

Yes - there's actually 3 O-rings in that fitting. Fitting is removed by loosening the retaining bolt underneath, and facing aft. Take the bolt right out, and the fitting comes out.

Some pics (not mine, just a quick web scour)

Fitting removed, showing all three O-rings:

Mine leaked, and when I removed the fitting, the O-rings basically crumbled. Good easy part of regular carb maintenance.

Thanks from proflow
