Here is a better method: remove the fuel tank, with its carburetor line and pressure line. Pinch off the exhaust pipe pressure line, blow air into the fuel line and pinch it off also. Now you have a pressurized fuel system. Submerge the entire assembly into a container of water. Look for air bubbles escaping arround the fuel tank, tank lid, pressure, or fuel line.
ok, i just did that. No dice. I was gonna order another tank from HPI that doesnt come with the primer. it was raining today so I wasnt able to try agian. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I will install the O'donnel plug.
