-yes, all the gas came out thru the vents in that plastic air filter.

-yes it ran fine before transport

-fairly certain the petcock was off during transport but i'm interested in knowing what the issue could be if it weren't (cpuld have opened during loading it without us noticing) however tho, we did drain the bike before loading it.

-i'm assuming those little L shaped nozzles on either side are the overflow vents? there was a tube connecting them when i bought it with a massive crack in the bottom, so i replaced it. i'm realizing now based on that comment that maybe the crack was intentional and whoever put that tube there was just trying to make it so that the overflowing gas didnt leak down the side of the carb. should i put another hole in the bottom?

-just cleaned the carb as i said and it was relatively clean already, float and needle were in good condition

-would you mind explaining to me what the crack case is, and what it would mean for it to be full of gas? i'm reaaaally new at this
