I'll have to pull the needle tonight when I get home, but from what I recall, it was a diesel needle. Maybe I didn't get the float adjustment right. Will have to play with that tonight as well.

I'll have to post a photo of how our ring is. It's definitely a bit different than the Newport design. Basically a rod with 4 legs coming out one end and then a finned device that the rod slides in.
