Connect a fuel supply to the carbs with about six feet of head height. The carbs should not leak when held with the float bowls level - if they do then the float heights are set incorrectly and/or the float valves are bad. Then tilt them until they start leaking then level them again, the leaking should stop, test them by tilting them in all directions. If it doesn't stop then the float heights are set incorrectly and/or the float valves are bad or sticking.

yes i had to take apart the bowls again and clean them but this time i put 2 clear fuel filters on it and now no more gas leaks go to walmart and get the g3 fuel filters in the auto motive section and my fuel pump went out on me also so i went to autozone and bought part number sp8016u for a fuel pump works great and is only $53 instade of 150 from honda it pumps 2.5 to 4 psi and does not over power the floats i though that i would add that so if any one eles is have fuel pump issues well so far so good runs like a raped ape
