sorry if this has been asked to death.


went for a ride today (72 Honda cb350) and noticed when I got back that the overflow on the bottom of the right carb was leaking gas pretty bad out to the pavement.
stops when i turn the gas petcock off.

haven't opened the carb up yet, just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of what to be looking for when I do.

could be three things,
leaking or dirty float needle valve (solution: clean or buy new one)
improper float level (search float level tool, there are directions for a nifty measuring tool made out of a credit card)
sunken float (my bet, they can be soldered but its a real bitch, i replaced one on mine for 20 bucks as I recall. I was able to solder the bad one, but it had enough extra weight that I was pretty sure my levels were being affected.
