Fuel comming from the over flow is due to the float needle not sealing.
causes, dirt in the seat, worn needle, float is leaking and sinking or tang is broken.

If the bike has been sitting for a few weeks try draining the fuel bowl and once it starts to flow again tap float bowl.

then try dirt in bowl.

is the fuel only leaking when running or starting? or just sitting.
if it just sitting and its laeking the fuel vac tap is faulty..

Cub Cadet 1045, is there a fule pump or is it free flow?

It is almost certainly freeflow/gravity flow but go online with make and model and search or go to manufacturer web site or find a local service centre and ask there.

1992 FXRS Dyna Glide. Gas leaking from overflow valve off the carburetor. Help please!

If it is a continuous flow the vacuum operated shut off valve is likely defective and not shutting off the flow from the tank when it should when there is not vacuum to keep it open BUT also the needle and seat are likely not cutting off the flow of fule into the float bowl as the float is not closing off the needle and seat assembly due to float or float setting problems and or a defective needle and seat.

Transmission leaks somtime out over flow

Could be a filter, but check the vent for the transmission first. The vent will look like a tube syicking out of the trans with a plastic car on it and it goes nowhere.

My 2003 TDI vw is losing the fuel out of the fuel line and I do not know why can not see any leaks. The car just will not start after it sits for a couple of days. I can bleed the car threw the injectors...

its not loosing the fule its running back into the tank, you have an air leak in the suckshion side of the fule line, a pin hole some were or a leaking joint it could even be in the fule pump itself or the fule filter "o" ring is leaking air but thats were the problem is try fitting a none return velve to the fule pipe upto the pump
