so here's the deal folks. got her back together and no leaks. in the morning, fired it up and no leaks. twisted the wick and the damn thing started leakin, though not as bad this time. thru out the day, it would stop leaking and start leaking very sparatically (still got an average of 42 MPG so it dont leak a lot really).
im kinda wondering if i need to clean the carbs better amd maybe replace the fuel lines? i replaced the fuel filter while i was workin on it "just cuz" and the old one was all brown (suppose to be transparent white lol) and varnish lookin. wonderin if that could be the problem. any ideas helpful.
oh, and DANMAN, i checked the float levels and re-adjusted one of them (one was at 14mm as MaxAir suggests, the other was at 12mm). now they are both at 14mm
