I have a WD45 and just had carb rebuilt and I don"t understand why my spark plugs are dry. After I try starting it gas starts to leak out of the carb. Any ideas?

Low engine compression, bad gasket in the intake/carb areas. Stuck valves some place. Ok so try this and see what happens. Pull the air cleaner tube off and hold you hand over the carb. You should get a good suction there if you don't then go back to what I said at first and find where you loose vacuum

Thanks for the ideas. All gaskets are new in the intake/carb area. Have such good suction that it try's to pull my fingers in. Have good pressure in the piston. This is why I am so baffled.

Timing off and or poor spark. If you messed with the distributoor any maybe you have the plug wires on wrong and it is in fact burning the gas but because it fires at the wrong time if does not run

Thanks for all your help. This morning my brother-in-law helped me pull it up to the house and into the garage were it is heated so we could work on it. We went through everything and changed nothing, added 5 gallons of gas to top off tank and it started right up. Not sure but I think it was just to cold out. Spent three hours blowing out our driveway and a few of the neighbors and it didn't miss a beat. Thanks for all you suggestion and if I ever have something I can't solve I will definitely be back to this site.
Thanks again:) Rick

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
