Ariens 7524 with Tecumseh oh195 engine
My engine was surging so I rebuilt the carb. It ran great but began leaking gas from the drain plug on the float bowl. The carb is a series 1 emission. I replaced the bowl with a new one without the drain and the carb was leaking just enough gas to make my garage smell like gas.
I replaced the o-ring between the float bowl and carb body and it started leaking much worse. The gas is leaking out of the o-ring and backing up the primer hose. This is what I have tried.
1. repaired the original float bowl by removing the drain and plugging the hole with a scree head and jb weld. Reinstalled original bowl.
2. Replaced the needle, seat, gaskets making sure the grove was down on the seat and set the float to 11/64.
3. Made sure the needle clip was pointing the correct way and tested float in a sink of water. Set the float level to 7/32
The carburetor still starts leaking pretty heavily after about 15 minutes. I have searched and don’t know what else to try. I would appreciate any help
