Still learning all the workings of the motor here. I checked the gasgolator - clean, and the tubular screen in the carb, clean. Am I missing a filter?

Maybe not. I had an in-line filter with a fairly fine screen in it. It was located inside the cabin between the fuel selector and the firewall.

As I understand it here, the gasket does not require sealant but rather the bolt threads do because the threads extend into the casing and that makes the bolt shafts susceptible to oil leaks.

I would make sure it's not a fuel tank vent issue before I replaced the pump. Are the lines clear and unobstructed on both sides...does the problem exist regardless of which tank is selected.
