Default Re: Carb overflowing/leaking. What other maintenance should I do while I'm at it?

At the gas pump 500 yards from home The carb was POURING GAS onto my foot...turned out the throttle cable broke when i stopped and there was NO WAY to pull it off full throttle.

Turned the petcock off, pedaled home and ordered a new throttle cable (2nd one to brake in the same place right above the lead ball in 3 months)
