I would check the float valve seat. They are really hard to get leak free. Took me three tries on my 660.
This is what I did. Took the top off the carb, removed the float and needle, and left the mounting studs on. Placed it upside done in a bench vise with the studs clamped lightly. I then ground an old wood chisel to tightly fit the float seat. I put an adjustable wrench on the chisel and tightened. I got about 3/8 of turn on that puppy. I thought I had it tight before. Good news was no more leaks.
All I can say is that is what worked for me.
BTW, I agree, those hundred series shut off valves are the pits.
