Yes i used the teflon tape for a sealer instead of using a liquid harder of any kind. As far as ever removing the brass fittings again, i dont know if i ever would, but, ya never know
I just know that those little brass fitting was a bummer to get out, didnt want to drill the brass out to far. Suppose ya could drop some propane or other cooler liquid on the fittings to remove them, but they are a Tight Tight fit. As far as being tapered, i didnt take that close of a look at them, they could be tapered. NOTE TO SELF: Find the old fittings and check for a taper!
Im sure other ridders will chime in with another way to fix the inlet fuel leaks too. The Hardly fittings seems like a good idea to, had i of known of them i probably would have went with the Hardly fittings. I can hindsight 100%

Just BTW

They sell removal tools commercially, but you can DIY easily. Once the plastic is snapped off and just the brass nipple is left, you can tap the inside of it to fit a bolt. Before inserting the bolt, thread on a nut and washer, and a socket for a sleave, then thread it in, and tighten the nut...Voila ! "El Cheepo" puller !
Not my idea btw, saw it at a Harley forum for removal from CVK40 carbs.

I measured how deep the factory pressed in plug went then marked how deep to drill with the drill bits. Think about it before drilling to deep.
Here is a safer way to remove the brass plug.

Haven`t looked at this thread for a while and just realized that Wolfie`s explanation for a DIY puller is illustrated in The DEUCE`s link.
