What?

A fresh set of o-rings normally fix things right up.

If that is not an option, aren't the holes for the plugs 1/2"? Half inch brass freeze plugs should tap right in and eliminate the plastic plugs. Use a little Permatex and tap them in from the inside of the float bowl, concave side on the inside of the float bowl. Be sure to drive them in far enough that the jet will be able to draw fuel when the bowl is place back on the carb body.

OK, perhaps it is a bit on the ghetto engineering side of things, but it is cheaper than rebuilding a set of carbs in unknown condition.
