have 1985 nissan pick up with carburetor leaking gas on top at air fuel mix solenoid. How tight should screw on top of solenoid be. It has been tightened about a full turn to not quite " wrench tight". Leak has stopped but am wondering if that is too tight to where heat may build up cause a failure in whatever seal there is there and cause another leak.

I would not tighten this any more, if the leak continues I would be re building the carby.
