Fuel leaking
« on: Oct 14, 2017, 15:45:24 »
Hi everyone,

I have a problem. When I open my fuel crane, my carb overflow spits out loads of fuel...
Even when I'm driving, when I stop at the traffic lights there is a whole puddle of fuel beneath my ace.

Anyone knows why or what to do?
It's the first time this happens.

Thx in advance!

Maybe there's a problem with your float.  It could be stuck so it doesn't cut of the fuel.

Sounds like the float to me as well.

Go over ever join on the fuel lines just to make sure there are no leaks from other areas also.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Okay thx I'll check it out, do I need to remove the carb or does giving a few knocks with a screwdriver or something on the floatchamber help?

A few taps ca sometimes loosens a sticky float but you should really at least take the float bowl off and have a look.

Sounds like a sticky float.

Make sure you're not using any alcohol based fuel (E10 in Australia) as this can cause rubber to perish/go soft and sticky.
