Yes, carb floats do have an adjustment.

Now, beings you didn't say what YEAR or MODEL of Harley, OR state what kind of carb (Harley has ran many different brands and types of carbs over the years), I can't give you much info beyond that.

The gas is not going into the intake but has good gas presuer

-Check the fuel filter inside the carburator and the cut off fuel plunger inside the carburator. It might be stuck in or lose from it floating arm.
That's why it doesn't let fuel flow to the caburator recevoir.

Um dtf 110 fuel hose loose

Sounds like the carb overflow hose. It it's leaking gas the float in the carburator is stuck and letting too much gas into the float bowl, causing the excess gas to drain from this hose. You will have to remove the carb and set the float to the proper level.

Gas shooting out of rubber hose above carburator. craftsman lt200 with kohler engine.

If hose coming off carburator does not connect to anything then it is the over flow for carburator when float gets stuck and does not close needle valve causing excess fuel in carburator bowl and is drained automatically through vent orfice connected to hose that gas is dripping from. If this is the case then remove carburator bowl, check float, needle valve and o-ring in where needle valve goes. sometimes when carburators sit over winter with gas in them the gas breaks down and over time will gel/harden and cause float to hang up and o-ring for needle valve to deteriate and not sealing properly. clean and replace parts as nessesary.
I hope this helped.

Carb is overflowingon 100 nomad. Ihae replaced carb, fuel pump and petcock. Does this bike have a sensor to shut off the fule pump?

The flow of fuel it stopped by a float actuated plunger in the bottom of the carb. When the fuel in the carb bowl raises the float, the plunger if lifted and prevents more fuel from entering the carb until the level lowers the float.

Where the the fuel coming from/out of on the carb? Because if you have replaced all the parts you say you have, all that is left of the fuel system are hoses, and the tank.

I have a tecumseh carburator .It is the type with the float in the bowl.My problem is I can not get the carb to stop leaking gas .The float and bowl have both been replaced.It still continues to leak.I am...

Does the bowl have a drain screw that could be leaking? There may be a gasket there.
If it is leaking from the top flange, it sounds like the float is not stopping the gas.
Try taking the bowl off and holding the float up; does that stop the gas?
Do you have to push the float up beyond horizontal before the fuel stops?
If so, the plunger may have to be adjusted higher to reach the seat.

Gas flows from cutoff valve to carburator hose connection but does not flow into carburator. What is blocking the flow?

On the top of the carburator there is a needle valve, closed by the float lever. 
If the carburator chamber is full with gas, the valve is closed and no more gas can enter the chamber.

If the chamber is empty and no gas flows inside, the valve may be stuck in closed position. Cleaning or some sharp (but not very hard) knoks on chamber cover may help.

Some times the float gets broken and falls down. This is a bigger damage, because it may lead to carburator overflow.
