Check the petcock seal at the tank.

Check the fuel line from the tank petcock to the carb...Is it brittle? Is it loose? Fuel will run downhill leaving you to believe that you have a leak at the carb.

Exactly Jim. Also had this experience. I thought it was the carbs leaking. I found out it was the fuel line that is brittle.

BTW...its been long time since we spoke...Jim. Regards to you and Karen.
