You lucked out, my friend. Once you get diesel in the motor, it combines with that graphite residue from the brushes and shorts everything out, then that's that. Plus the smell is indescribable :eek:...

Just kidding, that's excellent news! If my...

The tube is loose when the bottom isn't bolted down, just an oring keeping it in. It probably won't leak, and isn't the hardest to replace if it does. I wouldn't sweat it.
