Thank you for the info and tip. I connected the tube from the tank without the bowl and I was able to push up the float to stop the gas from going through so then the gas leaked through the inlet pipe. At this point I might just get another left carb. instead of trying to fix the inlet pipe.Fuel inlet pipe, originally press fit into the body by Keihin. Put a rubber plug into the float needle bore to seal it and then connect the carb to the tank to test for a leak. If it is leaking then you're looking at making a pipe and hopefully getting it to seal to the carb or finding a barbed screw-in fitting. There's not much material surrounding the pipe so this is an iffy repair.
