Carb full of gas

Recommended Posts

I just went out to fire up the 7016 to mow. I opened up the fuel shut off and the battery was dead. Went to the house to get the booster and when I came back, gas was pouring out the bottom of the carb. I took the air filter off and the carb was full of gas (literally to the top). I shut off the fuel shot off and let it drain. When I opened it up again, fuel was pouring into the carb faster than usual. Thoughts?

Duh....I've done that and totally spaced it. Just a few weeks ago I stopped mowing and went in for a little R&R. When I came out I'd lost about a qt. of gas on the drive. A tap with a small hammer and the leak stopped and I got my good mood back. Maybe I need to give you my number to so if I have trouble you can help me too. :D
