Fuel leaking from overflow tube between right side carburetor s

Post by stevensacc » Thu Nov 01, 2018 5:08 pm



So my 1200 sat for a few weeks . Thought its was away for the winter ? We got a nice day or two here in Pa. Anyways , fired up the ole girl and smelled fuel. Seems the overflow tube between the right side carbs are leaking . I guess it's a overflow tube ? Are the floats stuck or something else . Guessing the carbs are going to have to come out . Any help would be appreciated. Is there any easier way ?

Your hilarious! I do my own work . Just like the poor boy alternator kit I did myself.
Being it was a stuck float all I did was tap on the bowl with a long center punch . Problem solved. Btw, thanks for all your help . If I wanted a comedian I'd go see a real one . :twisted:
