the overflow leaks whenever the fuel is on and the engine is off. I found that the o-ring around the needle seat is the problem, the needle looks fine, I would just like to replace the seat o-ring, has anyone come across this problem and found just a replacement o-ring?
I may have to replace the whole needle and seat assy.

any help?

Just my opinion,but.... I'd replace the needle and seat as a set. It can't cost that much.
