stopped for a red light , turned right then a tight left into a garage for that slow leak .. just as we pulled in , the motor stopped, refusing to start. no tools and a long from home...
luckily there was a handy auto parts store quick check of the carb throat confirmed a blocked needle and seat - fuel flooding in - pouring rain managed to strip the carb , and fix the problem .. although an extra seal - causing a fuel blockage on the intake hose at the carb and dropping the float pin shut off from the needle on the ground didn't help .. found that about 3 feet away from straight down phew !!
,, after an hour or so we were off again like a scolded turtle...
time to replace the filter & luckily the seat was not scarred.
just thought id share that .....
