Fuel Leak old Mercury 4hp "Thunderbolt" outboard

202.71.168.59

I have just been given an old 4hp Merc outboard which I have got perilously close to running but the old style Merc cast alloy twist on fuel hose fitting at the motor end, engages ok but will not seal and spews fuel when pump primed. I have replaced the fuel hose and both end fittings as a complete unit. I do not have a manual so must ask whether I am also missing something like a seal at the engine end of the connection. Should there be any anything to seal the face of the connector where it fits into the motor or is their likely some other explanation?

Many thanks for any assistance.
