Ok so I took everything apart....

So I was thinking that this gas leak was coming from the bowl gasket or one of the screws holding the bowl But upon further inspection it seems that I have gotten in deeper that what I bargained for. This is bigger slow drip which seems the be the main source of this leak. As base below the motor has a puddle of gas which I did not notice before. This cannot be cause by over filling can it? What do you guys recommend my next step? Oh and also as I thought this was a power more engine and I was told by the seller. But to me it looks more of a clone or a "China-more" To be more specific. THis thing has been giving me such a headache and I would just leave it but my whole garage smells of gas and we have a small baby inside so Im just trying to fix it asap. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I feel like it might be the connection from the gas tank to the carb. Because on the carb end the clamp wasnt even on the tube properly and had a tiny bit of gas around it.

i think u answered your own question, the clamp on the fuel line should be there/installed properly else you would most def a gas leak

If you think you overfilled the tank, siphon some gas out and see if the leak stops. There is often an indicator in the tank for the proper fill level.

I don't know what you mean by "all I did was open the case." The area you circled in post 4 is not a likely source of the leak, the gas is likely just collecting under the engine. There is a drop of gas on the end of the fuel line at the carb. I suggest that you remove the black flywheel cover so you can inspect the entire fuel line from the tank outlet to the carb inlet. Fuel may be leaking somewhere along the line and dripping off to collect under the engine and running down the line to drip off at the carb.

If fuel is leaking from the fuel line connection at the carb inlet or tank outlet, move the tiny hose clamp up the fuel line an inch or two, put the machine in the service position so fuel will not run out (you may have to drain the tank some if full), pull the fuel line off the carb or tank, cut a half inch off the end of the fuel line (make sure there is enough slack in the fuel line to reconnect it after cutting), push the fuel line fully onto the carb or tank and put the hose clamp back in place. You may have to get another piece of fuel line.

Also, please identify the make and model of your machine.

yellow circle is your fuel line connection to the carb, most likely the source of fuel leak
red circle is oil drain tube
