02 Big Bear 400 4x4 carb leaking gas top tube
leaking gas out of the top tube by the air mixture screw after I removed my carb on an '02 400 Big Bear 4X4 as it was leaking gas out of the bottom drain/overflow tube; so figured it was a stuck float and did not know what else to do (already sprayed and ran gumout through carb). The float seemed stuck when I took the bowl off.. I moved the float up and down and it seemed ok.. so when I put the carb back on the quad it now runs like it is cold with the choke on (alomost sputters) and leaks gas out of the top tube (not sure what the name of the tube is but essentially it just goes out to the atmosphere). If I turn the gas petcock off it runs great for about 15 seconds until it runs out of the gas in the carb.
Any help would be greatly appreciated... thanks.
