So this inlet tube just pulled out of fuel pump when trying to remove the old fuel line. Doesn't look like it was soldered ? Whats supposed to hold this in there to keep from leaking? I haven't downloaded manuals yet (eyes are not working that good today) they may talk about this, not sure.

most are just pressed in..I have used a punch to expand them back out(not much) when they get loose like that and press them back in with no issues.

I've run up against the same thing a few times. They just seem to be pressed in and it doesn't seem to take much to press in or pull out. I searched through my carb parts and found two other types of push in fittings for carbs or fuel pumps. The last one was 4 years ago on a B&S 11hp vert shaft in my JD 111. It has worked fine for 4 summers now. I was tempted to put epoxy on it when assembling the fuel pump but I was afraid that it might split the casting. Good Luck, Rick

We frequently pull them out of motorcycle fuel taps. Always just tap them back in. Never had a problem.

I'm sure delicate is the password, not sure I'm qualified with my eyes....Is it a standard tapered punch or one you have adjusted for this purpose ?

They are pressed in like the others mentioned
Any thoughts about using something like "Seal-all" (the gas tank repair in a tube) ? It leaks fuel currently when installed.
