hey

so my express has been running fine then all of a sudden it starts leaking gass from the drain port on the carb

i didnt notice the puddle under it till we got out of this rain spell we have been under

so the last two days has been especialy bad running all the way out of gass once

here is what i did to try to remedy it

changed out the drian screw for another used one only the one i put in has the rubber ring aound it which the other one didnt..... so i thought that might have been it

but it still leaks..... and weer talking at least on drop per second

so then i though the needle wasnt plugging the gass inlet hole or somehow the float wasnt moving up to push the needle up

so i switched the float out with another used float and it leaked more then

i can get it started once i totaly drain the carb bowl

also i have a bad petcock so i have to clamp the hose down with a clamp wrench when im not running it

what do you think i can do about this mess?

this is my only transportation
