Reply to "Carb Fuel Leak - Need Some Help"

Gordon Nichols posted:

I have yet to receive a new carb from anyone and have the floats set correctly right out of the box.  Not Weber, not Dellorto, not Holly, not Carter/Autolite, not anybody.  Always have to set them up.  If somebody built that engine and just pulled the carbs from the box and installed them, well.....   That’s what’cha got.

Follow the book, take your time and you WILL be rewarded for your effort.  

Nice job on the plug, too!

I finished both carbs yesterday. Surprisingly, working on the carbs is not that complicated. If I ever decide to get into learning about "jetting" - I think that is where it will get complicated and too confusing...

The passenger side carb float was WAAAYYY off. It was like 15mm seated. Should be able to get it all back together this week and see if my efforts stopped the fuel leak...
