Os t-maxx engine help

Okay, so i rebuilt my t-maxx and havent used it for like two years. Today, I tried to start it, but when i pull the cord, its not sucking up any fuel from the fuel tank. So, i investigated further and found that is not sucking any fuel in, there was no problem with the carb, but it seemed like when i pulled the cord there was an air leak between the exhuast adapter and the exhaust header. This is the exhaust adapter i have http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/newth...newthread&f=48 So my problem is the seal im using and header it is leaking air when i pull the string so i cant suck any fuel up. I need something to help make a seal between the header and the exhaust adapter.Do you know what i can do?

A leak between your header and adaptor shouldn't cause your engine to not draw in fuel. You might need to clean out the pickup, or just replace the tank.
