Default Re: need help - carb leak

Thanks guys for the input!
It looks like fuel level problem. I had an extra brass float lying around so I decided to switch floats. There was no fuel sloshing inside the old one but to my surprise the floats weigh differently, They are almost the same size but the new one is lighter than the old one. Unfortunately I didn't have scales to measure exact weights but I could feel the difference for sure. So, remembering physics, I decided to install the lighter float since it would give me lower fuel level. It worked! I still have some drops from a pump rod but now as much as it used to be.
Now my next question: what are the symptoms of having too low fuel level?
