    im having a problem with my 14 hp kawi, it was running rough when i started it today like it on choke but it wasnt, i ran it for about maybe two minutes and then shut it off, after that i checked the engine only to notice it was leaking gas out of the carb somewhere, i took off the air filter to look in the carb and there is a bunch of gas in there, i tried to start it again but nothing, anyone ever had this problem? or is it to early to diagnose?
