    I have a FC420 Kaw on my scag WB and I have a small gas leak that is coming from the top of the bowl. I replaced the large gasket already and I still have a small leak. What should I check out next? Thanks

    Is the bowl seated correctly? May check to see if the bowl is bent ot out of shape..

    Chad is on track, If you didn't get the rim of the bowl in the groove then tightened the nut you pulled the bowl nut area upward, So even getting the bowl in the groove now it still wont seal.
    Place the bowl bottom down on a flat metal surface and use a larger screwdriver handle in the bottom to tap it back down flat.
