OEM valves are equipped with a leather washer on the valve stem. Tightening the valve nut compresses the leather washer around the stem preventing leaks.
Aftermarket valves do not use a leather washer but are similar in other respects.
Synthetic compression sleeve on aftermarket valves may work but do not know if it will hold up to ethanol long term, and ethanol free gasoline is becomming increasingly difficult to find.
Would buy box of OEM leather washers but NLS.
Would like to know if O ring will work and not leak.
