Fuel leak on my eager1 6.75 hp mower transported from CO to CA

My eager1 6.75 hp mower was transported from CO to CA. They drained the gas from it, and now when I try to fill gas into the tank, it leaks profusely from the bowl below the primer pump. The nut on the bowl seems very tight. Bad gasket? Does the bowl come off via that bolt alone?

Thanks, Jeff

Try this.
When the mower is about to die, loosen the gas cap.
My mower gas cap vent holes plugged up and kept stalling the mower.
If it works, drill out the vent holes.

I have a Craftsman mower. Last year I had a similar problem with the mower stopping after running awhile. I noticed that the plastic gas tank was collapsing. The next time it began to stall, I immediately loosened the gas cap and it didn't stall. The vent holes in the cap had plugged up. Check this out.
I can't help you locate the fuel leak, although it sounds like the carburetor float is not stopping gas from flowing into the carburetor.

Could be a head gasket. I'd recommend a compression test or better yet a leak down test that will show where the leak is. Hope this helps. Please vote yes, thank you

Lawn mower motor


No it's sounds like the float in carb is stuck I've had 3 motors do this I put a fuel shut off in the line after I cleaned the carb out and rebuilt it. The problem is the gas breaking down an gumming up the float in carb. Drain the oil and an run some oil thur it to get the old gas out make sure you clean the carb out to.
