Vacuum leak at idle adjustment screw

Anyone know how to seal this? I just did smoke test and it's coming out out there pretty good!

Unless you somehow find the seals to rebuild it, you can't properly fix it (outside of buying a new one).

Here's and unpopular suggestion tho - if your idle is set, seal it with a bunch of black silicon glue. LET IT DRY FOR A WHILE - you don't want glue being sucked into your engine and you'll be set.
