Uhhhhhhh, what are you going to do? If it leaks, you have to replace the bowl its pressed into. If you can repair, you'll have to take the bowl off. Start hotrodding and fix it!

They do not last. Replace with brass.
I believe the instructions on my street avenger said they are temporary.

I figured you weren't a noob, that's why I figured to remind you that either way, you're gonna have to take it apart. No harm meant and I'm glad you didn't take offense.
Yeah, Jegs or Summit are the places I use. Wish there was a local speed shop around here but Ramchargers closed up about five years ago.
