The bushing I am refering to is actualy screwed onto the threaded part of the needle valve it is appr. 1/4 inch long and metal.I looked at a drawing of this carburetor in a Clymer manual. It shows three drawings in the model A carburetor. The second drawing shows a "needle valve bushing". There was no packing (Looks Like O rings) on the needle valve.What I guess I am worried about is, retapping the Caburetor if there is nothing for the valve to screw into. I also wonder if this is the wrong neeedle valve for this motor BUT it ran fine two years ago and nothing has been changed. Thanks again
