    ANT IT LOOKS LIKE THE BOWL GASKET IS LEAKING. BE CARFULL WHEN YOU TAKE IT APART, AND MAKE SURE YOU DONT BEND THE JET. LIKE THE OTHERS SAID TAKE THE FLOAT AND CHECK IF IT HAS AND VARNISH ON IT, IF SO CLEAN IT OR REPLACE IT. LOOK AT THE NEEDLE, IF IT HAS A WEAR RING ON THE RUBBER TIP REPLACE IT, IF IT HAS A COMPLETELY MEDAL NEEDLE REPLACE THE NEEDLE AND SEAT. WHEN YOU REPLACE OR REPAIR THE NEEDLE/SEAT TURN THE CARB UPSIDE DOWN AND WITH YOUR MOUTH BLOW AIR IN THE INLET," MAKE SURE THE FITTING IS CLEAN, GAS DON'T TASTE TOO GOOD," IF IT STILL LEAKS IT NEEDS A NEEDLE AND SEAT IF NOT PUT IT TOGETHER AND IT SHOULD BE OK.
    GOOD LUCK
