take it off and make sure everything is tight?

Re: gas leaking from carb! help!

there is a good chance the little metal bits that support the float are bent or something. when the bowl is full of gas the float moves up and closes off the valve that allows more gas to enter. if it is bent or something gas will flow into the bowl even when it doesn't need any and will leak out

What kind of carburetor do you have? A bing or dellorto or what ever. Maybe its your gasket because thats what most times happens on bing carbs. A new gasket is $2.90.

If its a del the float bowl gasket is always tricky, replace it, thats what i did and it was leaking hella bad from the bowl.
