Default FS-200S-P Leaking Pressure Regulator

Greetings Mr. Bax,

I have an FS-200S-P that is running great at all rpm ranges, yet it is weeping/dripping fuel from the slot at the pressure regulator. The engine has about three gallons of fuel run through it. Is this normal?

Best Regards,

Bax,

I should have done my homework. I read similar posts and it looks as if the diaphragm is shot. Would it be better if I sent it in for repair, or just buy the carburetor body?

If it's just the regulator, it may cost quite a bit less to just send us the carb. If the engine's under warranty, it may be covered.
