    hey guys. I have a 2003 scag wb with a 17hp kawasaki. It started leaking gas from the carb. It is slowly dripping out of the airfilter cover. What is wrong and how do i fix this. Thanks guys.

    Did you spray any carb cleaner in the carb? That stuff will easily move dirt to places it should go. It does sound like the float is stuck or a piece of dirt is on a needle seat. I would say take it apart and clean it but if your going to take it apart I would get a rebuild kit for it. Very easy to do.
