    I have a 1992 40 HP Evinrude that is leaking fuel from the Schrader Valve. Is there an o-ring or gaket behind it somewhere that could be causing this. I noticed it tonight and it was already too dark for me to want to investigate further for fear of losing a small part. Just thought I would see if anyone had seen this before.

    That's the valve on the fuel primer, and yes they do leak at times.

    You can get a new o-ring or a full end cap for the primer solenoid with the valve in place. I usually replace the whole end cap.
