Revival leaking alot of gas out of carb

I have a 2002 Revival, and today I filled it up with gas and when I parked it (with the gas on, like always) I came back about 1 hour later and there was a 1 foot wide puddle of gas under it. I figured it may have just leaked out from just filling it. Then about 2-3 hours later, I went to start it and it wouldn't. I pulled off the airfilter and I poured gas out of it. I was pouring it out for a good 5 seconds. I got it home, and again it did the same thing. It has never done this before, and I don't know what it is. Thanks!

Sounds like the float is stuck or sunk, I always use the fuel shut off just incase.

Yeah, I just read that off of the Motobecane post. Thanks! What causes that?

Re: Revival leaking alot of gas out of carb

Maybe some debris on the float needle, clean it off with some carb cleaner and make sure the float moves up and down freely and doesnt stick.

things that cause a carb to leak;

dirt inbetween the inlet needle and seat

worn inlet needle and seat

leaking float

rusty float hinge pin

bent float hinge pin

crack in the carb body

loose bowl drain screw

leak where fuel line attaches to carb

leak from gas tank, runs down the fuel line

petcock leaks, again, runs down fuel line

improper float height

inlet needle and seat not mounted to float correctly

carb is gummed up

Re: Revival leaking alot of gas out of carb

Great list DonP!

The only thing I would add is a worn out

seat o-ring. I've seen it on older bikes

but I'm sure that is not the problem with a 2002 revival.
