7116 leaking carb

Recommended Posts

Will the carb leak when I have the front tires up on ramps? It seems like it would since that would allow the fuel level to rise, but I want to double check since I had some issues getting the carb float level set initially.

I do need to add a shut off valve when I put on an inline filter. I just wanted the make sure the float tab hadn't slipped under the spring like it did the first time I installed it.

It will leak a little at first but should stop. The fuel that leaks out is accumulated in the carb throat and when you raise the front it will run towards the drain on the bottom rear of carb. You could carefully pinch the line to prevent a float valve leak.
