Honda BF50 - fuel leak

Hi All,

Not posted anything on the forum for several years down to my RIB being off the water!
Anyway, I'm just preparing my RIB again and after several hours managed to get it started again. Amazing as the engine (Honda BF50) has not run for over 3 years.
This came at a cost though as I notice fuel is leaking out of what I would describe as a 'Core Plug' in one of the carbs.
The plug is about 12mm diameter and I'm wondering how easy it is to replace, get parts and install.

Has anyone suffered the same problem as me?
