Fuel leak

Alford,

Don't really know but often hear about floats sticking. Sometimes dirt or gum is the cause. I think a stuck float can also flood the engine making it hard to start. Try a half can of carburetor cleaner in a full tank of gas. I like Sea Foam. If this does not work you may need to remove and clean carbs.

Maybe some ohers have had this also.
