SOURCE: fuel tank leaking how to

I don't think you will have any luck sealing this from the outside.
Removing the tank (preferably empty), filling it with water and soldering all of the seams (if metal) or replacing it if of plastic.

This could be sloppy manufacturing showing up late, stress from being slammed underneath (is there signs of dents or scrapes?) or if metal, it might be rusting through which is pretty much a death sentence for it.
Pouring some (a cup or so) methanol, pure ethanol or a commercial product intended for that use, into your tank now and then will cause condensation to bond to the gasoline where it will pass though the system and out.

SOURCE: gas pouring out of air filter

carb is gummed up from the old fuel turning to varnish and clogging the jets. while trying to start, its trying to inject fuel, but its clogged and taking the path of least resistance (coming out the air filter).

you'll need to drain the gas tank and remove the carb to clean it out. if unfamiliar or uncomfortable doing this, then take it to someone to do a carb cleaning.

Mccullugh MCC1840 18" chainsaw. Gas pouring out bottom of saw. How do I get to the gas tank?

The fuel tank is part of the rear handle support body.
The fuel line to the carburetor goes into the top of the tank.
You will also find a return line from the air purge primer bulb. More than likely, one of these lines has broken or cracked. Gain access to some of the lines be removing the recoil assembly.
1) Remove the Air Filter and Filter Cover
(which you have already done)
2) Remove the recoil assembly to gain access to the primer lines.

I would take the bowl off the bottom of the carb.. Probably you have clogged up holes that let the gas into the bowl.Or either the needle is stuck up not allowing the gas to flow...That's why pouring gas in carbs would let it run for s few seconds....Also try fresh gas..Gas doesn't have led in it anymore..It don't last year from year...After grass season is over..Buy some from Lowe's or home depot..Pour it into your tank and let the motor run to get it done into the carburetor...Then the next year it will start

How do you drain the oil and gas out of this mower mtd 22' 4hp and how do you change the spark plug? do you need any special tools/thank you soooo much natalie

Drain plug for the oil should be under the deck next to the blade shaft. Usually a plug with a square head on the bottom of the motor. Loosen the fill plug and then remove the drain plug. Any time you go under there make sure you disconnect the spark plug wire so no spark can jump.
Gas is another thing. No fuel line as carb is part of the tank, so only way to empty is to .....
1) tilt the mower over and pour out the gas. Good time to change the oil and do it before you add the new oil.
2) unbolt the tank from the motor and remove tank carb and all a single unit. Then turn it over and dump the fuel. there are only 2 bolts holding it on so after you remover the air filter you can see them easily. Just remember how the throttle linkage hooks on.

2002 hayabusa throttle sticks cables are good springs on the stacks is good runs good after stacks is spayed an cleaned what keeps making it stick. Bad oil, Been running with no baffle in the exhaust...

Varnish builds up after awhile and causes this problem..gas can go stale in less than 8 weeks if the bike sits for awhile...Go to your local auto parts store and buy a can of Seafoam...pour 1/2 the can in on a full tank of fresh the tank down as fast as u can...pour the rest of the Seafoam in the next tank of will see an improvement...Would be a good idea to replace fuel filter after the second tank, any debris or sludge in the tank will be cleaned out also.. never run your bike without good air filtration, this is bad karma. K & N makes a good high flow filter. As far as motor oil...i recommend a full synthetic like Lucas... Mobil 1 or Vavoline...change it every 3500 miles.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

I empty gas tank and put new gas. could it be something is clogged?

It is a myth that sugar will mess your car up. Sugar does not dissolve in gas, it will just sit in the bottom of the gas tank. You will need to drop the tank and have it cleaned, and replace the in-tank fuel filter, but anything upstream of the fuel filter will be okay.
