Default Re: Help.. Broken Bottom engine casing.

The liquid was most likely your carburetor overflowing.
Double check all fuel hose connections and that white handled fuel valve for leaks. Look for external sources before looking for internal ones.
If all connections and the auxiliary valve are good then the float might need adjustment.
Please hesitate before adjusting it though. Every once in a while they can momentarily stick open and the carb will flood a little. Engine vibration will shake it loose again and things go back to normal. Just keep an eye on it and if it happens frequently then consider adjusting the float.
