I've been working on the Toro 16775 my late FIL bought me in the late 80's. The carb needed a primer bulb, needle/seat, bowl gasket and a fuel inlet. I've got it all back together and running but it bothers me that the fuel fitting is very close (if not touching ) the engine block. I pressed the fitting in all the way but didn't add a lot of force since it was plastic. I'm pretty sure I ordered the right fitting. Is this a problem? I was going to circle the fitting in the photo but i can't figure out how to do it in Google Photos or windows 10.

If it isn't actually pressing on the block or interfering with the carb's mounting, I'm not sure if there is any movement between the mounted carb, and the block to create any meaningful abrasion at that point.

I do share your gut feelings about it being that close though. Not sure of the carb mounting here, but would a heavier carb to block gasket give you a few extra thousandths clearance?
