Hoping for some help, at least a little insight.

My father recently purchased a 2005 750. It had been sitting in storage for about ten years. The tank was full of rust and petcock plugged, that was remedied. After reinstallation of the gas tank, a leak was discovered on the carb. It appeared to be coming from this rod, which is moved by the throttle. I popped the E clip and washers off to find what looked like felt packing. Does anyone have any idea if this is a simple fix by replacing the packing or does the carb need removed and rebuilt? Thanks for any advice!

Thanks for the info. When I get a second, I will definitely poke around some more with your suggestions. I hate messing with carbs, only had to deal with a couple in the past. First one ran okayish after rebuild on a 1980 GMC, second one is for a sled and has been in pieces for a year. The local dealer said the carb is nothing that they want to deal with. Ill give your suggestions a shot, worst case I have to pull it off and find someone local to dig into it.
Thank again, your help is appreciated.
