So Iíve been messing around with some different carbs this morning and I have an answer for you! I donít know!! Lol! I always thought it would leak because it meters fuel, but it seems fuel is only metered when under vacuum, so when running it pulls the fuel through and when not running it doesnít, so it maybe wouldnít leak??? I dunno, I am by NO MEANS a carb expert, I rebuild maybe a dozen various carbs a year, so I could be completely wrong.
