I think that I would fix the carb. so that it don't leak and then if I forgot to turn the fuel off it would be no big deal. I never turn my fuel off and I never have any leaks, but now I suppose tomorrow I will.

One little sliver of rust under your needle jet is all it takes for a leak.I don't like the smelling your fingers cure for #2 reasons.

I have rebuilt the carb or replaced the needle seat a few times over the years, but have not been able to completely stop the carb from leaking.

many years ago it did not ever leak, but that was a long time ago.

may order another kit and see if i can stop the Occasional leak,

but the old tractor runs so good, i hate to bother the carb.

idles at 400 rpm's, takes fuel fine, starts good, pulls good,

however, it would be nice if it did not leak.

took it to the tire repair store COOP the other day,
rear tire repair. had to leave it at their shop.
put a big sign on steering wheel, telling the desk clerk and mech to be sure and cut fuel off if they started and moved tractor.

when i picked it up the next day, it was inside their shop as i had ask that it be left inside.

I saw a white bleached out area under the old tractor and i knew then, they had left the fuel on overnight. cutoff was off when i got on tractor, but carb was full of fuel.

i was POed, but they could care less, guess they were not used to working on old junk tractors.

local Coop maintenance shop.
only time i ever had to leave it. guess i should have just brought it home and took it back another day so i could have stayed with it.

(like a person taking his kid to the dr)

was told they would get it right in for tire repair, but as i drove up a big heavy eq trailer (18 wheeler) was being backed in and he was getting all new tires on the trailer, so you can Imagine who was sent to the back of the line.
