    After Setting in a hot enclosed trailer, my Cub trimmer builds alot of pressure in the fuel tank. Actually all trimmers and blowers do the same.
    The Cub seems to flood.
    When I go to start it, the engine is full of fuel. Have to clear.
    Is this a bad carb problem, or should I loosen the fuel caps?
    Hate to drive around with the caps loose.
    The trimmer runs great after clearing all the fuel.

    it could be the inlet needle is not sealing off real well or maybe the spring for the needle is weak
