I put new gaskets on my 851 powermaster because of an air leak due to an old gasket and the performance improved sinificantly....but as soon as I turned it off, gas was leaking from the choke butterfly bushing. I suspect I did not assemble the float correctly . Before it was not leaking but now it is...any ideas on the float?
leaking gas in georgia...

Hi Dog, It could be that the float is not adjusted correctly or is rubbing against the inside of the float bowl. But, it is also possible that the work you did dislodged some dirt in the fuel line that found its way into the float valve and is now preventing it from closing. Good luck...Al English

Al
Thanks for the reply...How does one adjust the float...I don't have any specs yet. Yes there was much debris dislodged during the carb work. I had to make a gasket and it might not be trimmed up enough inside causing the float to rub. Any ideas on where to get a gasket kit?

Hi Dog. You can get a carb kit from Ford/New Holland or you can get just the gasket as well.I think the kit is only about $13, Or you can get them by mail order from some of the tractor parts stores on this site under Marketplace up on the top left side(see parts suppliers) Ron
