If you remove the carb you'll see a small pin hole at the bottom bolt area....it goes thru the bolt area and into the intake of the carb. It's there as a safety valve,in case the float doesn't work properly....sometimes the pressure from the gas tank will force gas by the float , so you should shut off the gas vavle when stopped. I just went thru this with mine and had to install another shut off cause mine doesn't work. It solved the problem! Also pin point up on the float... Mine was the other way.
