New (Used) Imperial 26

New to me Jacobsen 26 model 52624 7426 w/ Tecumseh H70-130065 Serial 0121 06508. Fires up. Leaking fuel out of top of carb where choke comes out. but will put in new shut off valve for now and work on cleaning / repairing down the road. Will post pics etc. Don't know the exact year -- maybe someone can tell based on info. Based on the lack of safety features and no primer bulb -- think it's pre 1973. Any feedback would be appreciated. Will post pics soon. Thanks.

sounds like maybe the float isn't able to close the float seal all the way?

Your Jake is from the 1971 production year. I have 3 of the 26" models, plus one I bought for parts. ---- John

I just picked up one a few days ago in great shape for $25......I'm all excited to get it in the shop tomorrow and go through it. I fired it up on ether when I unloaded it from the truck..good spark and electric start works...carb needs attention. It looks like a tank!

Thanks John,
The guy I bought it from thought it was 20 years old -- lol. I knew it had to be older just based on lack of safety.
Seems like a great machine. Will probably do the same -- pick up an extra or two for parts.
