There is obviously a problem with this style of carb... Google this or do a search here and you get a ton of hits. The problem is nobody responds with the fix and most of them are one and done posters. This carb is only a year old. Dealer put in a new carb when I bought it because it set for awhile.. I realize it could be the needle seat or the floats. Based upon the number of problems on this issue, is it possible that when you put the bowl back on that something is causing the floats to stick? Tomorrow I'm going to take the bowl off and try to blow through the gas line and see if I can get it to seal or hook up a gasoline and try that and see if that needle will seal up. Has anybody else have any solutions?
