Installed a new carburetor on stihl bg55 blower. primer bulb filling up but is not pushing gas into carb. no cracks in line filter is good. Have tried two new carbs with same result.

If the bulb wont prime you have a leak some where lines, tank, cap, if it is not air tight it will not pump.tank full of gas.

Longjia 125cc raptor had problems with fuel leaking from the bottom of the carb and though the air filter. Just put a new carb on OK for a few day now doing the same any clues please

New carbs aren't known for leaking unless you had it open and altered some thing. A float can get stuck if you let it sit without using it. Should put stable in your tank and run it so thestable gets into the carbs.
Check above the carb for a gas leak from the gas hoses and check the gas tank. They may be running down onto the carb and just appears like the carbs leaking

Is the carb flooding?is there black smoke coming from exhaust when running, if so it could be the carb over filling with fuel. Is there petrol leaking out of the carb? If not check the fuel pipe is in good condition

Why is gas leaking from the air filter

This is a carb flooding issue, there will be a rubber tipped needle in the carb, if this is not seating properly fuel will leak through the air filter, you need to go into the carb, check the metering lever height and replace the needle, unfortunatly it is not possible to replace the needle seat so if it continues to leak after fitting a new needle it will be a replacment carb.

Does a new 2 cycle filter( looks like a wetstone) need to soak in the fuel tank before running it?

Connect the fiter to the line and fill the tank, give a shake and fuel should ooze from the other end of the hose, if not there is a restriction in the filter.

the filter on the end of the line in the tank may be clogged or the gas cap may be bad they are designed to hold pressure and help push fuel in to the carb

I filled my gas tank up and the next day it was gone.. I saw gas where the air filter box was & when i shook the bike more gas leaked out of it.. Why would gas be coming out of there?

sounds like the carb is filling up with gas and spiling into the air box you need to check the floats to make sure that 1 they are in the correct postion 2 that the jets are not blocked

hope this helps

Fuel leaking from air box after shutting down

Thats the float valve seals not shutting off, did you clean them & set the float heights?
The overflows from the carb bottoms must also be blocked for the fuel to fill up the carbs which then leaks into the air filter
Check also that the fuel tap turns off when bike is not running

Gas leaking through hole in carb into the air filter

It could be a bad gasket or o-ring that needs to be replaced. Is it possible something vibrated loose and you're missing a part? You can probably get a carb rebuild kit that will provide many of the gaskets, etc. you would need to repair it unless there is some physical damage to the carb itself.
Also check the fuel line carefully to be sure that is not the source of a leak that is running along the body of the carb and dripping from somewhere else....

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
