there are 2 of these tubes that aren’t connected to anything that leak fuel when the engine is off. Do I need to connect them with the filter that came with the kit?

Also, when I turn the fuel valve to on, some fuel will seep out the fuel lines though I have them securely on there. Is this common?

Thank you.

On a 2 stroke, those would be the drain tubes/overflow. It's normal for fuel to come out of those when the engine is shut off. You do not need to connect them to anything else.

Looks like a 4stroke to me, Chaps doesn't specify. I think simonbau may be right. Vents should be higher than the bowl. I run only 2 strokers. Many 4 strokers here though. Hang tight someone knowing will come along. By the way - welcome and best of luck.
