Yet again, I have succumbed to defeat by my 78 Honda PA50. Last night, I took the engine off and cleaned the carb very thoroughly. Everything was fine. The reed valve wasn't sticking, nor was the float. I put it all back together, and i know i put it back together right. I put the wires back together perfectly unlike last time. I checked the petcock and gas is getting through. I also have an in-line fuel filter on it.
I hopped on it, turned it on & peddled, but nothing happened. I looked down, and gas was all over the ground. All of the gas is just going straight through the carb and out the little drainage tube coming from the bottom of the float bowl. Its as if I just hooked the petcock up to the drainage tube. Why is this happening? I would really like to get this ped up and running.
