I am hoping that someone out there can help with my problem. The first fuel leak was at the petcock so I replaced that with a new one. I ordered it from moped junk yard. The stem with the filter on it that goes into the tank seemed to be a bit long but, I decided to make it work. The petcock does not turn all the way off it continues to drip.
The second leak seemed to be coming from the bottom of the bowl on the bing carb. I took it apart and cleaned the bowl and replaced the gasket. I also used a permatex sealant just in case. The float and needle seem to be working. After I did all this the moped seemed to lose a bit of power. I also replaced the fuel line and fuel filter. Is it possible that because the petcock does not turn off all the way that it is causing the carb to overflow? or would that be a problem with the carb? any other suggestions that I can try? maybe testing the float somehow?
thanks for your help.
