I'm in the process of rebuilding the carbs on my '84 GL1200 Interstate and I'm noticing little things missing as a result of the bikes prior owner, like some of the tiny nylon washers that are used on the carb linkage for example. And this is causing me to ask questions.
I can't tell from the photos in my shop manual, Clymers, or Haynes manuals if there is a rubber "O" ring being used on the bowl drain screws. Can anyone please advise me on this?

Thanks a bunch Mooseman! That explains the "O" ring that came in my rebuild kit that I couldn't find a home for. Evidently a prior shade-tree-mechanic failed to put back several things on this bike. Fortunately they consist of little things like this that are easily replaceable. But you need a Keen eye for what is possibly missing. It's no wonder when I tried to turn over this engine that fuel was running out of the bottoms of the bowls.
