    I ordered gaskets and fuel lines. There were no visible cracks in insulator block. The parts will be here in two weeks. Hope this take care of the problem.

    THANKS for all of your help!!!

    One other thing you may want to take a look at. Take a look at the juncture of the jug and crankcase. A leak there could also be a problem. Is there any accumulated oil/gas around the base of the jug where it joins the crankcase?

    On echo I have seen that isolation block get a little warped which can be checked on flat surface. Lightly sand it if not flat. Gaskets will likely fix.
