only time ive ever had this happen its been a stuck float..... maybe its not the needle and seat but the actual float..... no cracks in it or anything out of the ordinary like that? this post should have been under the garage btw but thats alright

:lol: Hi how did you check your floats? My 84 did the same thing when I first got it! Take two coffee cans fill them with gas put floats in and let them sit over night. The next mourning my right one was still on top ,and my left one was on bottom of can. problem fixed hope this helps Nye Racing #13

i would think that if you held them under water that would speed up the process... you may even be able to see bubbles from where it is leaking... (if thats the case) and then a little super glue would fix the problem

:?: No the idea is too make sure they don't sink! you want them to stay on top! This means that your floats are good.

i understand that i was just thinking if you held them underwater with your hands, they would fill with water faster and you wouldnt have to wait all night... you know like hold them under for a minute and then let go... see if they come back to the top
