I have a rochester monojet in an old chevy pickup if I let it sit for 4-5 days it looses its prime and I have to dump gas in it untill it pumps back up. I had just bought a rebuild kit and the guy at the parts store says its a common problem with these carbs. He also says there is a thing that looks kinda like a freeze plug that wears and most people just put J-B-Weld on it and it fixes that particular problem. My question is where is this plug so I can fix it while I rebuild the carb.

I looked at bottom of carb and found nothing also took of bottom plate and there were the usual ports but nothing resembling a plug. But I did notice the needle valve wasn't hooked to the float with anything but the kit came with a new hanger could that be the problem?
