Snow commander fuel issue

Hello all! First time poster. I am hoping someone can help me with a problem Iím having with my Toro. Itís about 14+ years old and Iíve had it since I bought it new. Starts up and runs nicely every year. The problem Iím having is when Iím done using it, I notice gas leaking on the ground underneath. I removed the cover and checked the gas tank (not in the recall) and fuel line which were clean. So I then replaced the gaskets and a fresh spark plug and fired it up , ran beautifully and no leak was spotted. A short time after I shut it off ,again I had fuel on the ground. The fuel filled up in the carburetor shield and was overflowing onto the floor. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I would love to keep this Toro running for another 14 yrs! Thanks again, Mike

Welcome to SBF Bluf6. It sounds like your needle and seat is leaking causing the bowl to over fill and leak. You may have a little dirt in there or after 14 years, the parts or carb need to be replaced.
Here is a guide to help you.


https://outdoorpowerinfo.com/repairs...astic_carb.asp

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Might also want to check oil level and see if any gas may have gotten in there. Over filled and gasoline smell.

LOL! I guess that rules out what I said. I'm not familiar with that model.

I think it was a 7 hp 2-cycle, most powerful single stage Toro ever made.

My CCR3650 (6.5hp) version of that engine did the exact same thing. I tried 2 replacement carbs, one Chinese knock off and one $$$ Genuine Briggs and Stratton metal replacement neither one of them worked as good as the original plastic toro carb. So i ended up just installing a gas shutoff valve and using the original leaking carb. I turn the gas off and run it dry after i am done and no more leaks.
