Default A little gas under my carb

I think my GAV is leaking a little. Just enough to get a small droplet to form on the underside of the carb. I assume this isn't a rare occurrence. What is the common fix?

Thanks,
Carl

You will have to replace the gasket or live with it. It is not that big of a deal and it happens to a lot of carbs. It is coming from the throat then the fuel level is too high and needs a gasket under the valve.

Carb jet height maybe a little too tall and siphoning just a tad. Mine weeps a drop or two so I just live with it. Sometimes if I'm taking a break from other shop functions I raise the hood and grab a paper towel. I never smell gas so I'm not too worried. If you continue to smell gas in your garage something needs attention.
