It turned out to be the small o-ring that i replaced with the kit was a little thicker than the one that was on there...luckily i had the old stuff in a zip lock...since there was nothing wrog with the old one i just replace and screwed back together and now looking good...thanks for the help

Typical cr@ppy carb rebuild kit. Smart to always keep the old parts.
