I had already JB Welded the cork in place when I got these. I did a little research online and found that cork was common float material in old cars (just google "cork fuel float"). To keep them from breaking down or getting saturated they were covered with a good coat of shellac. I found a product called Seal All that's gas and oil resistant, stated to work on carburator floats and gas tanks, so I coated the cork well in it. Keeping my fingers crossed . . .
