leaking carb

Post by geomac1 » Sun Aug 19, 2012 3:44 pm



Looking at an 82 Interstate and it has small fuel leak when you open the fuel. Owner said it had been rebuilt, but still leaks some. I'm concerned about it and wonder if the 1100 carbs have an issue with them.

Any fuel leaking is and can be highly dangerous, try to repair this right away, it's probably just a seal in one of the floats bowls , pull the carbs ....

I hope to get a look at that today. Floats are easy to replace.
