Hi, Mypenn48 and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

Mike,

Sorry to hear the carb is leaking. This happens when the Carb Float Needle gets stuck and is easy to rectify.
If you watch this video on YouTube it will show you how to free up the Float Needle. It is the same procedure on all Carbs:

Fuel in filter and start pouring gas in carb, but won't stay running


Make and Model, year of vehicle?
I'm assuming the vehicle won't run unless you pour gas into the intake. If the vehicle will start and run while manually feeding gas to the engine, you can rule out spark and timing issues. Usual suspects in fuel system are dead fuel pump (electrical or mechanical?) clogged delivery system ( fuel line, filter, injector or jet) or intake leak (bad gasket or seal, vacuum leak, stuck valve). 25310438-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-5-0.jpg

Troy bilt pressure washer 3000 max psi working fine 3 weeks ago. Brought it out today and after filling with gas noticed gas poring out of air filter holder. Gas flow stops when valve turned to off. No...


Your carb has a stuck float. Most likely a piece of trash in the needle valve and seat letting gas in all the time. Could be the float has a hole in it, but less likely than just trash in the carb.
When you get it cleaned, change the oil. Gas most likely got into the oil.

The tecumseh carburetor on my mtd snowblower is leaking gas from the throttle hole on the side that is facing away from the engine . the carb is new and so are gasket i cant stop the gas leak


Gas is coming out of the area where the air filter would go IF a snowblower had a filter....That happens when the Needle valve is stuck open for some reason. Either the Float that closes the valve has a leak and sink in the gas or the needle is slightly rusted in the carb in the open position. you need to take the bowl off the carb and see if you can easy lift the Float and see the needle valve moving up and down. A;so see if there is gas in the float. There shouldn't be

2nd cylinder not getting hot and leaking fuel from it


Assuming the carbs were rebuilt properly, this sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and look at the float chamber fo any problems such as stuck float, float level not set correctly, and the correct installation of the main jet.
..
Use an air hose to dry out the cylinder then install a new spark plug AFTER you make sure that the cylinder is getting spark. Be sure to balance and sync the carbs when finished.

Please rate this solution.

Bike leaks gas from a tube between the carbs


Either the float is stuck or the gas set up sticking the float valve in the open position. The best fix is to take the carbs off and apart, but if you are not easy with that, sometimes Seafoam in the tank will dissolve the old gas if ti's not too bad
