In a pinch, teflon packing for water faucets will work, and if you are reeally in a hurry, try dental floss.

Kite string alway's worked for me whenever I had any problems with leaking needle valves on carbs or sediment bowls !!! Also works as thread sealant in a pinch ! Gene

For now, I used thread tape on the adjustmant screw. Ran the engine for about half an hour and things seemed to stay put.
Thanks again for the advice.
