Re: Leaking carburetor

if the carby is flooding when sitting it is either the float level, needle is not shutting the fuel or the carby is at too much of a angle which means you have to change the intake so it is level or readjust the float level. ideally the intake change would be the best fix for a crooked carby because not all of the internal circuits will work properly at too much of a angle from level.
